My sweetie pie, the Stag Beetle

Designed by myself and Petr Stuchly, folded by me from an uncut 25x25 cm square of tracing paper. This is a test fold :-D

Believe me, he really is the devil, Satan, whatever you call him.

Um, not really, but shaping those antennae and mandibles was quite a challenge.

All that aside, I think it turned out great. This has fulfilled my wish of designing a stag for long. My earlier was quite a disappointing run.

Special thanks to Pete for having helped me ;-)
