Camels - Montroll

These are two camels I folded from John Montroll's Origami Sculptures.

The Dromedary camel (one-humped) seems to have more folds, but is actually easier than the Bactrian camel (two-humped). That's because there is a challenging crimp fold used to make the two humps cleanly and close the model back up again.

The heads of the camels are identically folded in both models.

If you look closely, you can see the heads even include eyes under the brow.

The models are each folded from a standard 15cm x 15cm single sheet of Origami paper, manufactured by The Japanese Paper Place in Toronto, ON, Canada.
