Incredibly Realistic Hand Crafted Paper Insects

Tina Kraus of faltmanufaktur is a freelance illustrator in Münster, Germany who creates absolutely incredibly realistic crepe paper versions of different insects and other animals. Among Kraus’ most detailed works are the Giant Grasshopper (Tropidacris), a Goliath Stick Insect (Eurycnema Goliath), a Thorny Devil (Eurycantha calcarata) and a beautiful Orchid Mantis (Hymenopus Coronatus).
