Rabbit - Nishikawa

This is Rabbit by Seiji Nishikawa from the book Works of Seiji Nishikawa (2003). This is a Gallery OrigamiHouse publication and they are always great quality manufactured books.

The model is very cute. Nishikawa has a nice way of creating cartoon like animals out of paper that just scream adorable. Like his Panda, this model was folded out of two 15cm square sheets of Origami paper; one for the head and one for the body.

The head of the model is a little difficult to perch correctly on the body, but it's possible to do it without any adhesive substance. The model stands very well and has such a cute pose.

Diagrams for this model were also published in Origami Tanteidan Magazine issue 50.
