Japanese Papercut Jumping Horse 3-D Sculpture
This 3-dimensional sculpture of a jumping horse is an example of kiri-e, a traditional Japanese papercut art form. Washington State artist Kyoko Niikuni has used an X-Acto knife to cut her horse using two layers of black paper. One layer forms the horse’s left legs and the other forms the right. When weighted slightly, the horse can be displayed with a flat base. It also can be folded inside its hard-sided book-type cover for storage or mailing. The artist has embellished her handmade cover with decorative Japanese handmade washi papers. The full display dimensions are 8 ½ in. x 5 in. x 3 5/8 in high. When closed, the booklet measures 4 in. x 5 in.
Props: Stones shown in this photograph used as weights for display only and not included with this card.
