Yep, you read that right! I am featuring a goat. But not just any goat. I’m featuring a goat that is made out of over 10,000 Origami Gold Horses!
Since the Chinese New Year is going to be on this Thursday, the 19th, I thought that it be great to feature “Hyphen”!
Designer: Charles Kaisin~Belium
Materials: Gold Origami Foil, Ribbon, String
Inspired by the fresh new start of the Year of the Goat transitioned from the Year of the Horse, Kaisin custom-designs an 11-metre high goat-shaped art piece made of over ten thousand golden origami horses exquisitely hung by red ribbons. Hand-folded with thousands of sheets of reflective golden foil from Germany, the shiny golden horses symbolize fortune and perfection in the perspective of the Chinese, while the red ribbons as the hanging tools represent happiness and prosperity in the Chinese culture.
Happy Chinese New year! Hope you have a “goatastic” day!
