Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

This is the what I've been working on lately...


...the sculpture of the crossbowman, 14th century knight from the island Rab (Croatia).
I've been commissioned to make this sculpture for the hotel Imperial and it's a first sculpture of Rab's crossbowman ever. (The crossbow is original).
It was made from the metal plates, so the process of creating was the same as when creating a paper toy, but instead of glue I had to weld all the parts. This sculpture wouldn't be possible to realize without certain paper crafting experience, so I'm sharing it here on NPT.

(Hope to get more jobs like this, it was really a great experience)

no, because the snake sank in the lake with my camcorder
I have only 6-7 photos of construction phases, (Was for an exam).
however, nothing to do with your sculpture, really powerful!

Wow! Is it possible to see the film?

Would like to see the pictures of it!!
Well, this metal is 1,5 mm thin, so I had to cut it with jigsaws and grinders...

I too have done such a thing, a snake-dragon made of sheet copper, all modules equal bolted,
hand cut with special pliers (!); you to cut the pieces as you did?
