Hi,evryone,I'm a newbie and I'm Vietnamese .Origami isn't popular in this country and people consider it's just a children craft,buts I dun think so and I'm an Origami Maniac.
I very fond of the models of Hojyo Takashi san such as the Maitreya(Miroku Bosatsu),the Buhhda and so.From his HUMAN BASE we can create alot of models and I've successed in folding this HUMAN BASE from the crease pattern.But I no can figure out how to fold it from step to step like the diagram.
So if anyone has folded it or has the diagrams,can you tell me some hints or tips on where do I have to begin ?
Thank alot.
Here are the image of the human base and its crease pattern.

Hmmm - this one isn't as straightforward as it looks. Finding the main creases is fairly easy, but there are lots of small creases in the middle that are necessary for the base to collapse, but which I can't find an obvious folding sequence for.

Anyone else had a go at this?
