At first, the Panda for World Wildlife Fund paper sculpture looks like it has been through hell and back, as though it were an old, favorite toy of a now grown adult. Yet it simply illustrates the dire situation pandas around the world are facing. They are being torn from existence slowly but surely, and it is in your power to try to mend their sad and scary situation.

Created by Sydney-based artist Anna-Wili Highfield, the Panda for World Wildlife Fund paper artwork is one of her latest projects. Known for her stunning paper sculptures, especially her winged creations, Highfield has been commissioned by Hermes on a number of occasions for their window displays.

Yet the Panda for World Wildlife Fund paper artwork was created for a better cause than fashion. It is made out of archival cotton paper, cotton thread and wood.
