An Origami Dinosaur Sighting
Go ahead, take a good long look at that picture above. I found it while I was looking for some great Velociraptor images for this morning’s article and I had to share because it’s just amazing. Yes, you read that right, this Velociraptor statue is made from 54 pieces of paper. It is an origami dinosaur!
I’m too much of a perfectionist for origami dinosaur making…well that and my frustration tolerance is fairly low so soon enough it would be origami dinosaur pieces of paper. I can’t get over just how amazing this piece is though. Just 54 pieces of paper is all it took for Tran Trung Hieu to put this masterpiece together.
Who is this Origami Dinosaur Maker?
Tran Trung Hieu is a well known origami artist who makes the most incredible origami dinosaur sculptures you’ve ever seen. You can find some of them over on Tumblr and more on his personal Flickr account. Tran was born in 1984 in Ho Chi Minh city and while he currently teaches high school chemistry, he has been origami folding since he was 4 years old. Tran has shared his love for more complex origami folding and proves this love in his origami dinosaur models as well as other origami skeletons.
Some of my favorite pieces of Tran’s next to the Velociraptor skeleton include his: Giraffatitan brancai, Supersaurus vivianae, Archaeopteryx lithographica, Balaur bondoc, Giant Mosasaur and Therizinosaurus cheloniformis V2.
