Paper Axolotl


Handcrafted paper sculpture 2020

Materials: Crepe Paper, Wire, Pastel Chalk, Glue, Paint, modeling clay (eyes)

This is a delicate sculpture of an Axolotl I created with artist’s Crepe Paper. For my sculptures, I am inspired by the beauty of nature and I try to make them as lifelike and detailed as I can. Axolotls are salamanders that live in Lake Xochimilco in Mexico. Unfortunately they are endangered due to habitat loss. This Axolotl is almost lifesize, it measures around 20 cm from head to tail.
