For my sister

If I had won that big Megabucks lottery a few days ago, I would have funded this project myself. Brilliant. And how cool is it that you can make a living at origami?

Now the 33-year-old artist is appealing to Indiegogo’s crowdfunding angels to help him realize his ambition of folding a life-size elephant out of a single sheet of 50 x 50 meter (164 x 164 foot) paper. (So far he’s raised $13,843 of his $24,000 goal with 3 weeks to go.) Mabona says his aim is to show what a single sheet of paper can do by using it to create a replica of one of the world’s most imposing land-dwelling creatures.

How cool is that? I hope he gets there and I would love to see it. I wonder where it will be displayed?

I think it tells you where it will be built at the backstory link.

Looks like it will be displayed in Switzerland but he also plans to live stream the process which would be way cool to watch. I used to fold origami but in layers years couldn't find the time.
