A Donkey's Journey by FoldedWilderness A Donkey's Journey by FoldedWilderness
To carry his load without resting, not to be bothered by heat or cold and always be content: these three things we can learn from a donkey.
– Indian Proverb


Another model for which I painted the paper before folding; made form a single uncut square of paper.

The design for this one is by Román Díaz.

The donkey really shows its tiredness the paper you chose really matches what you chose to make. Your technique must be amazing to make the art you do. The donkey really looks tired in this piece. I wonder if it really is just paper or if its alive and you took a picture of it when you could. Most people would make it sloppy and some don't even think of how much un-recognition the donkey specifically gets. You gave it recognition in this piece. The only thing you can do better is,well,chose a background that makes it pop and also chose a background that makes the donkey look like it's getting ready to rest. Otherwise you did great.
What do you think?

This photo just strikes me. The bark in unison with the origami makes for a great photo.

what a sweet little dokey! the colours and textures are perfect in this shot (in fact it would make a lovely desktop wallpaper). the donkey doesn't even look like it's made of paper - more like some densely woven fabric or even learher. and I'm impressed by your folding skills - I'm guessing the figure is fairly small? anyway, fantastic job, keep it up!

Thank you very much (and sorry for being a bit late in reply)

Yes, the figure is a bit small and I painted the paper before folding it, that's why it looks different.
I'm happy you liked it!

It's not only what you've folded, but how you photograph them. They're just so lively and poignant. You do good work.

From a 12 inches square, the donkey is about 4 inches tall and 5 and a half long. :)
