Michael Turner sculpts stainless steel, using polish, paint and heat effects to achieve the right finishing touches for his insects. The beetles in the first image below are a small selection from a London department store window display – one of Turner’s many commissions . These might be my favorite bugs yet. Can you imagine?

Look twice at these insects. They look real, but they aren’t. They are paper. Folded paper to be exact. Paper folded from one sheet of paper if you want all the facts. No cuts. None. Robert J. Lang is one of the foremost origami artists in the world with a portfolio that boasts much more than insects. It will amaze and delight you. More Lang right here.
Can’t get enough? Everything in this Mitsubishi commercial is paper except the car. Lang folded the dragon and had help with the rest of the origami set that included hundreds of folded trees. Must have been a folding frenzy. A team of modelers animated the figures, bringing his dragon to life. Wonderful stuff.
