Explore ancient Egypt through origami. Learn two models designed by Anita F. Barbour. The sphinx with its lion’s body and man’s head is one of Egypt’s most famous structures. The shawabti is a mummiform figurine placed in tombs to do chores that may be required of the deceased. The origami versions of these statues are one-piece models from squares.
