Juho Konkkola is a respected Finnish artist known for the models he creates using the origami paper technique.
Some time ago, Konkkola achieved some notoriety by creating a samurai warrior, using this same technique from Japan that consists of folding paper.
Now, the artist has made something similar, but this time he has investigated about the Middle Ages to make a traditional medieval knight with his full armor through origami.
Konkkola has also shared a video where he shows the whole process. According to what he explains, this job has required 41 hours spent folding paper.
The record has been edited so that the entire creative process can be appreciated; in fact, it is a time-lapse that lasts 19 minutes.
In his Instagram account, the artist comments that the part that cost him the most to do was the sword, which has more than 50 layers superimposed on the handle sector.
For his works, Konkkola uses Wenzhou rice paper, a paper of Chinese origin that is highly valued for making lampshades, since it is flexible, but very resistant.
This paper can also be folded many times and, being thin, allows you to accumulate a large number of folds without becoming too bulky.
His other creations can be accessed on Konkkola’s YouTube channel. On the same platform are also the works of Tadashi Mori, another respected artist in the use of this technique and who has stood out for his figures based on the Star Wars universe, Pokemon and dinosaurs.
