It’s time for another edition of this week in origami where we feature the best new origami that was uploaded to the Internet during the past week.  There’s lots of cool stuff this week included a few praying mantises so lets get started.

First we have this beautiful horse folded by Damian Malicki.

Mariano Zavala B. designed this incredible Hatsune Miku model.  Hatsune Miku is an anime character that sort of represents an artificial voice in a Japanese music software program.  If you google her name you can find crazy videos of holographic Hatsune Mikus on stage at concerts.  You can find more photos of this model here.
