Papercraft Link

It’s been a good day for learning here.  I discovered both the term papercraft and the character Link (whom I’d never heard of previously*) from the popular video game The Legend of Zelda.  Papercrafter Haywan, the creator of this amazing life-size paper model, took a 3-D computer generated character, rendered it in detail to 2-D on paper, and then re-assembled its intricate pieces in 3-D once again in the real world.  That’s impressive handiwork!

*It’s true, I never played the game as a lad.
