To carry his load without resting, not to be bothered by heat or cold and always be content: these three things we can learn from a donkey.
– Indian Proverb


Another model for which I painted the paper before folding; made form a single uncut square of paper.

The design for this one is by Román Díaz.

This photo just strikes me. The bark in unison with the origami makes for a great photo.

what a sweet little dokey! the colours and textures are perfect in this shot (in fact it would make a lovely desktop wallpaper). the donkey doesn't even look like it's made of paper - more like some densely woven fabric or even learher. and I'm impressed by your folding skills - I'm guessing the figure is fairly small? anyway, fantastic job, keep it up!

Thank you very much (and sorry for being a bit late in reply)

Yes, the figure is a bit small and I painted the paper before folding it, that's why it looks different.
I'm happy you liked it!
