Elephant-Sized Origami Sculpture and Installations by Sipho Mabona

Artist Sipho Mabona says he folded his first paper plane at just five years old.  He never really stopped folding, but instead moved on to ever more complex origami.  As Mabona moved into complex folding he also moved from hobby toward art form.  His styles are widely varying from small pieces to elephant-sized sculptures (as the piece above) and room-filling installations.  Though only his animal work is featured here, Mabona also shapes paper into humans, inanimate objects, and even abstract art. See more of Sipho Mabona's origami after the jump.
