Stylized Opthomalosaurus, an ichthyosaur reptile from the age of dinosaurs… although he is not a dinosaur himself. These animals were dolphin-like in shape and possibly also in behavior, and I wanted to emphasize that with his joy in leaping with the waves. This piece also showcases the textures and patterns of the paper, namely the pink clouds in the manufactured paper and the scale texture on gold that I created with bubbles.

This artwork is currently available only through my website. Unfortunately I am in the process of recovering my large print-ready files after a hard drive crash.

    What a cute Opthomalosaurus! And that’s incredible work for being made as a paper sculpture!
