Strangely as the name of this model may seems, it would be more appropriate to call it an ‘Angel’ since it has pair of wings. But Mario christianed it as ‘Dama’, meaning ‘Lady’ in Spanish. Nevertheless, this is a simple model for beginners to practice folding box-pleat design, before engaging the more challenging models like ‘Geistkämpfer‘.
The diagram of this model can be found in Mario’s co-authored origami book “SERES DE FICCÍON – EL LADO OSCURO DE LA PAPIROFLEXIA” (Fictional Beings – the dark side of origami) with Anibal Voyer. This book was first published in Spanish in yer 2000, and later translated into English in 2005, under the title ” Dragons, Witches, and Other Fantasy Creatures in Origami“. If just want to fold this model, you may want to try the open diagram souce here.
Here I have done a test folding using a plotter paper measured out to 32cm x 32cm, just nice to fold the grid of the 32×32 box grid. But the overall result confirm that a thinner paper is needed for this model, alternatively using a 64cm x 64cm plotter paper would give better shaping to the final model.
Semi finished model of the test folding…. now to get a nicer and large sheet of paper….
