Talk about what you can do with your pastime! The guy we're talking about is an artist from Switzerland, Sipho Mabona. He took his passion of folding paper and made it his daytime job (who knew that's even possible?!). After folding planes for fifteen years, Mabona turned to Origami hoping it will enable him to come up with original designs. Here are some of his works that will blow you away!

To challenge himself, Mabona came up with the idea to fold a replica of the largest and probably the most impressive land-living animal there is—a three-meter-tall elephant!

Here's a time-lapse video of how they did this origami masterpiece!

It's amazing what you can do with a piece of paper and a few folds! And what came after the White Elephant is a life-sized rhinoceros.
