In the interim, Vivian Sandoval (a practicing Entomologist and origamist) suggested we might be able to provide some models for a forthcoming conference.


The Perkins Memorial Dinner was held by The Entomological Society of Queensland on the 8th of October 2019 – decorated by displays from us 🙂


Apparently some of the models were so accurate they were classifiable right down to species.


Ethan Harrison, Vivian and myself dug around in our archived folds and found an astonishing array of arthropods suitable for display.
