Mother's day Dragons by FoldedWilderness Mother's day Dragons by FoldedWilderness
"Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever."
                                                                  -Unknown Author
__________

"The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom."
                                                                     -Henry Ward Beecher



These Dragons will be part of a mother's day present that I think she'll really like.  I plan to mount them on a mossy log, much like the one pictured and make a little diorama of sorts.

They are origami dragons, made each from a single square of mulberry paper, painted with acrylic paints before folding.


The original design is from the talented origami artist origami-artist-galen
and a diagram can be found here fav.me/d4dnzxr

Thank you, I like presenting them in an original way, rather than doing the regular 'studio' shoot.

I think they could probably be made into giraffes now that you mention it. :)

Love this. The dragons are awesome and I absolutely adore the composition with the natural back- and foreground. This is true for your whole gallery. I think your photos are amazing. That is the reason not only this one, but several more are featured here: Themed Feature - Paperart
