Spend almost 20 minutes watching 41 hours of intricate folding work. This 4K time-lapse captures Finnish artist Juho Könkkölä as he folds an 18-centimeter-tall medieval knight from a single 68 x 68-centimeter square of uncut Wenzhou rice paper. A sword and shield are included.
“One of the greatest challenges in this figure was the stark contrast between the shield and the sword; the sword has over 50(!) layers inside the palm of the figure, whereas the shield has only one layer on a large surface.”
