About the Model

the Origami Goat has been designed by Peterpaul Forcher. It’s difficulty is  low intermediate. It makes a good challenge for people that already fold models like the Origami Crane with ease. Any kind of origami paper can be user to fold this Goat. You need to divide the sheet into thirds, so either you need tools like a ruler, or have a similar way of doing division in the paper. In the tutorial video, one “pure origami Way” to do this is demonstrated.

Most of his models remain undocumented or unpublished, a small collection of diagrams can be found at the homepage of Carmen Sprung  He died on the 28th of May in 2006 aged almost 60 years.

I like the Mouse for it’s simplicty and comic look. it’s definetly not as expressive as Joisel’s famous Rat, but it is also so much easier! You can instantly tell that it’s supposed to be a mouse and you will be able to fold it right away
