I learned Raul Rosado’s origami dog in 1997 and immediately recognized its usefulness for designing a sphinx. When in high school, I wanted to become an archaeologist until I saw all the required science courses in the curriculum. I thought art would be easier.
Editor’s note: The Sphinx is one of a multitude of designs Anita created for her “Stone in Paper: Ancient Egypt” exhibit at the 2002 OrigamiUSA convention. Photos of the display are available here.
