Kinnaree pop-up card 1 by Himmapaan Kinnaree pop-up card 1 by Himmapaan
~Very many grateful thanks indeed for the Daily Deviation!

Right oblique view. For other views, please see:


Simple pop-up card (in terms of construction, at any rate, if not of the cutting ^^;) of the kinnaree (กินนรี ) of Thai mythology. For a drawn version with a variation on the creature's lower half and a little mythological background, please see this deviation below.



The two halves of the card were each cut seperately from a single sheet, including the wings and tail coverts, which were then folded into place. The leg positions and decorative element on the lower front torso are different on each half.

The penny is for scale. The card measures 130mm x 150mm when closed. Made from ivory Canson Mi-Teintes paper. In an unusual moment of forethought, I actually managed to time myself on this project: 8-10 hours. I wore out four scalpel blades.

In case anyone is interested, here is a picture of an off-cut:

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-08-25
*Himmapaan wore out four scalpel blades cutting out Kinnaree pop-up card 1, and I can see why, the intricate details in this are mind-blowing! Fullview and be blown away by the wonderful, clean lines - this is truly amazing paperwork!! ( Suggested by simonsaz3 and Featured by Myana )

Oh Gods! you did this?!... I didn't make the connection to your illustration work until today when JohnPatience mentioned you in a comment he made (on a personal journal copy)  of my Khayyam article for the "Art History Project" here on DA. (fav.me/d6xhwnc) Your gallery looks very attractive and when I have some moments of real relaxation..., I shall look slowly.... :)

 

Best wishes! Till later...Peter.

Reminds me of Peter Callesen's 3D cutouts...I know it's not exactly the same concept but its all so lovely and intricate. I can imagine what your hand felt like after wearing out the blades...
