Artist creates origami knight from a single piece of paper

What can you create from a single sheet of paper? Well take a look at Juho Könkköläand you will find incredible possibilities. The Finnish artist creates detailed origami sculptures by meticulously folding and marking a single sheet of paper. After impressing social media with his samurai model, he created another amazing human character: a medieval knight wielding a sword and shield.

While it seems impossible that such an intricate work of art could be made without cutting the paper or using glue, it’s the truth. Könkkölä spends a lot of time planning the many folds needed to create one of his sculptures, spending days, months, even years finding the perfect folding pattern. Once he has a solid plan, however, he has to carry it out by carefully folding the paper, perhaps thousands of times. The medieval knight required 41 hours of work, which Könkkölä documents in a time lapse video.

Not only is the swordsman impressive from afar – in his proportions and pose – he’s also equally impressive up close. Konkkola was able to include tiny details along the knight’s striped armor and even add a pattern to the outside of the shield. The sword required an amazing 50 layers to make it as strong as it does. “Before starting to design my own origami figurines, I drew inspiration from the works of other origami artists, such as Robert J. Lang and Kamiya Satoshi; but nowadays, history, mythologies, folk tales, fantasy and more inspire my pieces, ”Könkkölä tells My Modern Met. “I also have a decent collection of all kinds of figurines that I have designed and folded over the years, which I have used to develop new ideas and maybe find some old gold nuggets that I don’t. haven’t turned into finished works of art. “
