Longhorn Beetle
Model Name:Longhorn Beetle
Source:Origami Insects II
Designed by:Robert J. Lang
Folded by:Brian Carper
Paper used:50 cm. square of tissue foil
Date posted:2008-01-28 16:25:03.0
Remarks:If you like box pleating, this is the model for you. This is all box pleating. A good half the paper is devoted to the antennae of the beetle. The head never quite comes out right when I fold this. If I had thinner paper to use it might be a better result. This model universally creeps out everyone I've shown it to (including me, to some degree.)

    I love this one. Amazing work! It makes me want to learn origami.

    I've seen this one being made and it still sort of freaked me out when I saw it lying on the floor. It's like a foot long and it looks real.

Leave me a comment. Please?
