This is my first attempt at designing. I tried to create an eagle in no more than 30 folds that still captures the essence of Hung Cuong Nguyen's eagle (2008).
It is my submission to the design challenge for August 2009, which was about creating a model in up to 30 folds that imitates a highly complex model.
Paper: 20cm square
Model: 12cm long, 17cm wide
