Professional origami artist Sipho Mabona has created a huge, life-sized elephant with just one sheet of paper. The elephant took Mabona and a team of over a dozen people four weeks to complete. Standing just over 3 meters high (or 10 feet tall), the work is now on display in the museum KKLB in Beromünster, Switzerland. Mabona financed the project through a successful $26,000 Indiegogo campaign, where he raised over $26,000 from 631 funders.
