Origami Sea Lion
Sea lions are the closest brothers of seals. They were named lions because the males have coarse hair around the neck and on the chest, resembling a mane. They are very large and impressive animals. Males reach a length of 3.5 meters and weigh a ton! Females are somewhat more graceful: with a body length of up to 2.5 meters, they weigh about 300 kilograms.
The origami sea lion is, of course, a more miniature and lightweight creature. You can place it on a bookshelf or a desk.
Fold the basic origami figure Kite.
Fold the top corner perpendicularly downward so that the fold line passes through point C formed by the two diagonal folds.
You see a triangle in the center: push the top of it down and to the side, making a “flattening” fold.
Let’s do the sea lion’s head: mark two diagonal folds on the top corner, then make a reverse inner fold.
The sea lion is almost done, let’s form the back flippers. Make the inner back fold along the dotted line.
You can bend his front flippers outward a little so he can stand. Now you can play circus, zoo or just admire the result. How big is your collection of origami animals?
