And Now For Something Completely Different...or is it?

This is something slightly different from my norm. This form of paper art is called Kirigami. It's the Japanese art of paper cutting. This Gorilla is from the book Kirigami Menagerie by Hiroshi Hayakawa. It's a cool book filled with 38 different animal models for your cutting pleasure. It's cool that for an uncomplicated cutting process, one can end up with such a dynamic model. Most of the models like this one have multiple poses. The Gorilla can also stand on all fours but I liked the "taking it easy" look better.
