498: Koh’s Rabbit

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2015 in animal, mammal, nature |

Every so often a model emerges that has such a naturalistic form that so perfectly represents the subject. This lovely rabbit, designed by Ronald Koh is one such “must fold” figure:498Kohrabbit

This lovely model is a dense fold (the hind quarters are necessary layer-dense to form the necessary flaps for the head), so thin paper is best – I failed on a 14.5cm square of coarse hand-made paper – it was too thick and my fat clumsy fingers could not tease the details but 20cm+ squares of most papers should be fine.

Diagrammed in “The Beauty of Origami” by Makoto Yamaguchi this design is a genius of paper economy. The level of detail here is genius and quite charming, with eyes, twitchy nose and mouth, lovely posable flopsy ears, well proportioned body and legs reminiscent of a HARE, not a RABBIT Mr Koh, but a joy to fold none the less. 498KohrabbitView

I have seen many photos of this model in various poses, and can see how this would be possible, I must play with the design as there is lots to love about it. This model supplants my previously favourite rabbit by Robert Lang (Sorry Dr Lang), among a growing number of rabbits I have folded, but this is a must-fold.
