Origami Eastern Dragon 25 feet long

www.orukami.com

 

I was invited by the Indo-Japanese Association and the Japanese Consulate to participate in a cultural exhibition organised to commemorate 60 years of India-Japan relations. I made this 25-feet long Origami Dragon for the event.

 

There are 3200 scales on this. I am looking so haggard because of almost non-stop folding over 6 days (approx. 78 hours)! Phew! :-)

 

Edit - June 12, 2012: This Dragon now sits in the Japanese Consulate's office in Mumbai.

 

Edit - January 16, 2013: This model was honored and cremated by the consulate.

 

Edit - January 23, 2013: I have received my third Limca Book of Records' certification for this model.
