Pig - Tuyen

This is Pig, from Wild Origami: Amazing Animals You Can Make (1996) by P.D. Tuyen. I got the book for only a few dollars used, not knowing what to expect from it at all. Little did I realize that Tuyen creates his animals from his own bases, and some are pretty darned neat.

Pig is folded from Tuyen's Basic Form III base, which is similar to the classic Frog base, but a little less so and with one full Preliminary base grafted onto it. This leaves the model with more flaps than it needs to make the pig out of, but I think it that just adds decorative value to it.
