More tessellation masks from Joel Cooper

I received an email this morning with 3 more wonderful pieces from Joel Cooper. His origami tessellation 3d masks are really astounding works of art. There are 2 new masks here, as well as a backlit photo of the mask previously shown in this post.

Here they are- click the image for the full-size version.

    I don’t know the answer to that one! Hopefully Joel will chime in at some point and say.

    I always wonder, when I see origami masks, “who” the mask is supposed to be…

  2. Joel Cooper (origami joel) says

    I never know who (or what) the faces will look like until they’re done. The first one I thought at first looked kind of goofy, but I later decided it was actually a portrait of Queen Elizabeth I, and now it seems almost, I dunno, “regal”. The second one I was thinking maybe Paul Gauguin, but Klingon Lincoln is probably closer to the mark.

  3. Administrator says

    I’ll buy the Queen on the first one.

    The second one… I don’t know. his face is coming out of a heart-shaped background. maybe it’s Cupid’s slightly more evil older brother?
