Currency Koi

June 30, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Good lord isn’t this little koi amazing? It’s amazing. Look at all those teeny tiny scaly folds! It originally appeared on the tumblelog of Mizu Kami and was subsequently reblogged about a billion times, but I don’t think he’s the artist. I bet the instructions would require 100 times the amount of paper. (via fasels suppe)

Update: It turns out that Mizu Kami did in fact fold the Koi, and the design is by Won Park. (thnx mizu & caitlin!)
