Origami Sculpture of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle


You don’t have to be a kid to be impressed by this new origami sculpture of Disneyland Paris’ Sleeping Beauty Castle created by famed paper artist Paul Jackson. Using 20 different paper-folding techniques, Jackson’s created this 10-foot tall “pop-up” castle using 5,000 origami bricks on the walls and more than 300 origami cubes, each folded individually. In total, this sculpture took four weeks of planning and over three weeks to build. Look closely and you’ll notice that the paper Jackson used is all from Disneyland Paris’ 20th Anniversary brochure.


It’s currently on view at St. Pancras International station in London until tomorrow, December 10. It will then move to the FirstChoice Superstore in Crayford, Kent, until late next year. Impressive!
