Fish Karakuri


Just in time for Lent:

Karakuri (Japanese meaning trick mechanism) are devices whose mechanical movement is designed solely to amuse or surprise. These charming Karakuri papercraft kits by Japanese designer Keisuke Saka are indeed full of surprise with a douse of dark humor!

Keisuke Saka is one of Japan’s most honored paper engineers. His beautiful designs are thoughtful with only a few moving parts, yet producing elegant movement. The kits require cutting (scissors and a craft knife), folding, and gluing (white school glue) to assemble. Each one takes less than two hours of time to complete. When finished, the models are good sized the robot stands 10 inches tall and its base is 4 inches across.
