Mane folding

A new technique brings new type of models into being. Let's look over "Mane folding" as a typical case.
It is difficult to make curves using origami technique. The "mane arc" in "Horse" (YOSHINO Iseei) is one of the excellent solutions. This technique seems to be rhetorical, but it based on clear geometry. Therefore we can apply the same structure to new works. Actually, KAWAHATA, after seeing "Horse," created "Dimetrodon" and "Edaphosaurs" with this technique.
