Paper has been used as an artistic medium for centuries, with papercraft creations used as decorative elements and inexpensive works of art by many cultures across the globe.
This amazing papercraft phoenix sculpture created by papercraft superstars Zim & Zou looks like it could be the centerpiece for a fiery fall festival. However, this particularly vibrant work was created for a pro-recycling campaign put together by French environmental organization Ecofolio.
The phoenix looks so delicate, with intricately detailed layered elements that look like they’d end up ripped or wrinkled during transportation, but surprisingly this papercraft masterpiece was placed on display under glass at a bus stop in Paris.
