White Elephant, A Life-Size Origami Elephant Folded From a Single Giant Piece of Paper

White Elephant by Sipho Mabona

Back in 2013 we posted about “White Elephant,” an ambitious project by artist Sipho Mabona to make a life-size origami elephant out of a 50-foot-wide square of paper. After a successful $26,000 Indiegogo campaign, Mabona has completed the 10-foot-tall sculpture, which is now on display at the KKLB art museum in Berom√ľnster, Switzerland. The folding process took Mabona and a team of more than 12 assistants 4 weeks to complete.
