993: Roman Diaz’s Deer

When asked by a colleague for a model that evokes memories of Japan, Miyajima’s Deer are right up there:

993 - Roman Diaz Deer

I started with a 45cm square of plain Kraft, and started folding – as much for therapy as it was for exploring a new model I am amazed I have never folded before.

Most of the initial work is isolating points for the head, but the subsequent forming of the body structure just highlights the brilliant design work of this model.

The proportions and stability of the model make it worth folding alone – I hope it evokes memories for Colleen as it does for me
