The New Dance [Origami] by HTQuyet The New Dance [Origami] by HTQuyet
The revised model of my old dancing swan.
I was surprised that the old one was already created 4 years ago, just seemed yesterday for me. After 4 years, many things changed, including my mind. Is it more mature? I'm not sure, just want to show something different between these 4 years by re-folding my beloved swan...

From one uncut right triangle. Vietnamese traditional handmade paper... maybe the best paper I have ever used for 20 years of folding!

The model is sold on my Etsy shop: [link]

You can definitely see the inner spirit of a swan here and I really love the delicate feel you express in this form.

I think what made the original swan stand out is the positioning of the wings. Your origami show more than just a symbolic representation of the animal; they show how it moves. In the original dancing swan, I see what they look like when they stand briefly out of the water and flap their wings horizontally, suggestive of fighting cranes. With this swan I see more of the grace usually associated with swans, which to me actually makes it stand out less.

The curvature on the wingtips is a subtle but very important detail which helps with the organic feel. You put in small touches like that everywhere - the beak, notably - and the feel of the sculpture benefits greatly.
