Bee Miniature Paper Sculpture

Published October 16, 2012 by Origami Architecture


This is a miniature paper sculpture of a bee which stands at 6 cm tall and was designed and crafted by artist Elsita.


{For the making of this bee I arranged 25 little pieces of paper that I carefully cut with a sharp knife and scissors. I gave volume to the pieces by pressing them from the backside with a wooden tool. Then the parts were glued together with professional acid free glue. The paper used is white 260 g/m smooth Bristol.}

Each is hand made and will look slightly different. The artist is selling them for $49.50 each, which seems a little steep for something I could probably make myself. And by ‘probably make myself’ I mean crumple up some paper and glue it together and then start crying because it looks absolutely nothing like this.
