X-Rays Origami Animals by Takayuki Hori

Japanese student Takayuki Hori has created this amazing series entitled ‘Oritsunagumono’ (which means ‘things folded and connected’), a collection of origami works designed to highlight the environmental threat of pollution to species living on Japan's coastal waterways.

Images of skeletons of eight endangered species are printed onto translucent sheets of paper and later folded into their origami shapes.

Hori showcases garbage in their insides using X-ray-like detail. If you look closely, you can see trash within the stomachs and ribcages.

The Oritsunagumono has won in 2010 first prize at Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Competition.
