Mother Crab

Creator/Folder: MEGURO Toshiyuki
Photographer: Joseph Wu
Date: June, 1996

The reclusive Mr. Meguro has come up with his method of origami design using origami "molecules" (bunshi), basic crease structures that can be assembled to construct complex models. It closely parallels the work of Peter Engel and Robert Lang. He used this technique to fold this mother crab, complete with babies under her belly, out of a single uncut square of paper. Always looking for new challenges, he seldom makes a model more than once (and often forgets the folding method).
