Creative, this origami Yoda sculpture is. I've been admiring papercraft creations from afar for awhile now, but with this Jedi master piece (pun intended), I can profess my love for the art form unabashedly.

The origami Yoda sculpture was made by Etsy user Catamation. It stands 9cm tall and is a surprisingly accurate recreation of the iconic green mentor -- complete with wrinkles and all. It was made using two pieces of paper that have been laminated together, one side's green while the other side's brown, and each Yoda creation is coated with epoxy varnish to ensure durability. The little figurine is even capable of standing on its own, making it a perfect display piece for Star Wars fans and papercraft lovers alike.

I can't wait to see more high-caliber Star Wars origami. I suggest artists try crafting Han Solo next.
