Postby anermak » September 1st, 2010, 9:52 am

The theme for September is ''Ancient Egypt"

The task of this challenge will Ancient Egypt. This is a very broad topic, which all allow all not only to demonstrate their skills in origami, but also delve into the history of the ancient world. You could fold Gods or the symbols of the Ancient Egypt.
Perhaps you will choose an assembly of warriors, masks, slaves or mummy, sacred animals or pyramides.
You can also fold the many kind of monuments of architecture.
In general, the choice is limitless. Good luck!!!

The following rules apply:
- one square, few square or rectangle per model
- no cuts, no glue
- your new own original designs only


qtrollip will be the judge !!!

FlareglooM, this model is flat isn't it? Very clever use of the colour-change.

Dear friends:

I am the organizer of the Ancient Egypt Origami Contest in honor to David Lister. This contest that has taken a whole year to competitors will finish September 30, 2010. I think it is a good idea to join and people that participate in this contest could also participate in the jousting. Please check the rules ( some had to be changed) at: http://joustingandchallenges.blogspot.com/ and the flick group for upload your models: http://www.flickr.com/groups/la_gran_ju ... guo_egipto

Finally. Sphinx 1.2.

The tail is about 3x as large as the body, when un-pleated. :shock: :o
