After an intense two-month planning process, Könkkölä was ready to begin folding his character. Starting with a single 95cm x 95cm sheet of “Wenzhou” paper (a sturdy rice paper), he made hundreds of folds over the course of a month to arrive at the final product — a gorgeously detailed Samurai figure who stands 28 cm tall.
Könkkölä documented his process on Instagram, so you can see just how much effort went into creating this figure out of a single sheet of paper.
His other designs are similarly inspired by history and mythology — you can see a few below, and there are more on his Instagram page.
