More purposes for paper, once the primary function is of no use, upcycling, an alternative to recycling.
Hitotsuyama Studio, is an artistic collaboration between Artist Chie Hitotsuyama and Creative Director Tomiji Tamai.  Hitotsuyama uses the daily newspaper to create these beautifully proportioned animals in a variety of poses.  As well as black and white print, she uses the color portions of the paper, to add another dimension and to accentuate the curves in the animals she is reproducing.  The technique she adopts, is a combination of rolling twisting and braiding wet paper.  Have a look at the Comodo Dragon Detail (click the image to enlarge it), to see more of the intricate work that goes in to these magnificent pieces.
