Another amazing mask from Joel Cooper.
It reminds me very much of the Assyrian and Persian artwork of ancient times- especially the heavily stylized beard.
The detail on the eyelids, nose, and lips astound me.
Click through to his Flickr photostream for another photo in 3/4 view, as well as many other wonderful pictures.
(For some reason I missed posting this earlier in March. oops!)
wow that looks amazing…
i can never see how people make this kind of origami…~_~
Yes, I think the same kind of thing when I look at Joel’s work!
I see the tessellations, but the scale of the effort involved is quite overwhelming.
