Very nice! I like LaFosse's butterflies and I've folded a few myself but, not as many as you! Great job on the models and the overall composition too.

That's pretty cool. Not only does it show off your origami skills but the butterflies are also arranged in an interesting manner with an ascension of color symbolic of ground to sky.

Thank you very much!! I'm glad you like it! I just finished another one so it should be up in a couple of days. I really want to make these for people, possibly even try to sell custom ones, but I'm not sure how I would go about shipping it considering the butterflies are somewhat delicate and don't lay completely flat.

I first thought it was a bookmark ( which would be awesome as one too btw) till i read it was 40 in tall :stupidme: Its very pretty and i like the chromatic change in color to draw attention to other butterflies as my eye read the piece.

Hmmm a bookmark isn't a bad idea at all, if I can find a way 2 lay them completely flat, and fold them that small. Maybe I'll play around with it in the future. I'll certainly have to give you credit if I manage to make one.

Thank you. I don't but if you look up Lafosse, you should be able 2 find similar types of butterflies, these are modifications on his system of folding, some of them exactly like the originals. Once you get use to folding a few types it becomes easy to add your own details, or change them around.
