“Wait a minute,” I thought to myself. “I’ve folded the Samurai Helmet before.”
Of course I was quite mistaken. The helmet from Taro’s Origami 365 was NOT at all like the Sumo design I folded over a month ago from the book Traditional Japanese Origami.
This investigation prompted a side-by-side comparison to prove that the angular-shaped models differ as did their crease patterns.
There were far more folds needed to create the abstract figure of a wrestler than the helmet. This was quite evident from their respective crease patterns.
I read Robert J. Lang’s “Crease Patterns for Folders” and marveled at how his models are designed.
