Simple Horse

Thanks to the kind person who posted the YouTube video for this simple origami horse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Y0Ev8GyKGA  The model is called “Traditional Origami Flipping Horse” which required scissors to cut the paper in two locations.

I was encouraged to fold a horse because I read a fascinating article in AtlasObscura.com about giant origami sculptures in a garden in Santa Fe, NM: http://bit.ly/2gdY97M  The multi-colored origami sculptures of horses were life-size and in metal rather than paper.

I loved the huge folds of the metal horse sculptures and googled images of origami horses. There were so many folded horse designs, I could hardly believe it.   Here is a nice compilation of origami horse photos:http://bit.ly/2h0Cbcb
