8th JOAS Origami Model Competition

Theme: No theme
Entry: Quetzalcoatl
Event: 20th Origami Tanteidan Convention
Results: Here

This was both my entry for the “Evolution” contest and the free themed contest. I originally wanted to make a winged snake, but it turned like how I imagined Quetzalcoatl. I liked the idea of using one large rectangle and twisting it to form the body instead of collapsing a base, like traditional origami. The downside is that the model needs a metal frame to hold it up, but it looks very nice to me!
