Butterflies  2006
A beautiful butterfly captured at the moment of spreading its wings and taking flight. This model is easily foldable from a six inch square, somewhat unusual for an insect complete with wings, legs and antennae, but the approach is lyrical and sculptural My model uses a waterbomb base, with two of the flaps forming the wings and the other two forming the legs After I'd finished designing the model with six legs, I learned that many butterflies have only four legs!
