Origami Winged Victory of Samothrace
From an A4 sheet of printer paper.
An experiment of how the paper can emulate the folds of cloth. Can be considered an early try of box-pleating. I wanted to fold a harpy, and ended up unable to obtain wings long enough when I had to fold a head. The Victory of Samothrace was a nice variation that didn't require folding the details of a head, and I was able to experiment feathers and cloth pleats.
The Winged Victory of Samothrace is a marble sculpture representing Nike, the Goddess of victory. It was the figurehead of a stone ship, and is currently exposed at the Louvre (Paris).
