Armor Ball (鎧玉) (Toshikazu Kawasaki)

Paper: 6 square sheets of Kraft, 15cm / 6in, 80gsm, blue/white/purple
Model: sphere with a diameter of approx. 6.25cm / 2.5in

At the BOS Autumn 2013 Convention last weekend this model immediately struck me. Only later did I find out it was one of Kawasaki-san's new designs. Apparently many others fell in love with it immediately just like me, because the next day Kawasaki-san taught it in an unplanned workshop.

I knew I had to fold it a second time as soon as possible. This is it!

I was contemplating my next video, and thought about redoing the video on Stephen Weiss's kangaroo, one of my favorites. When I fetched the book with the diagrams, "Origami Zoo", I stumbled upon this bear model, and simply had to fold it. An absolute pleasure!
