Newspaper Animal Sculpture

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Japanese paper artist Chie Hitotsuyama skilfully creates textured sculptures of animals using a technique involving rolled strips of wet newspaper. The unique application of each newspaper segment proves to be an eeffective method of forming the wild fur of snow monkeys or the density of scales found on the back of an iguana. For Hitotsuyama, these details are critical as she seeks to create the most lifelike sculptures possible.
