894: (344/365) Baby Harp Seal

While seal hunting still continues today for food, oil and pelts, the clubbing of baby harp seals has largely been banned.

This is Quentin Trollip’s “Baby Harp Seal”, a lovely model demonstrated in a video by Sara Adams. Designed for bi-colour paper, you get coloured eyes and whiskers from the highlighted colour when folded that way.
