Apsara Origami by collarander Apsara Origami by collarander
A small modular origami Apsara~

As Apsara is (as defined by Wiki): "Apsaras are supernatural beautiful girls: they appear as young women of great beauty and elegance who are proficient in the art of dancing. They are the wives of the Gandharvas, court servants of Indra. They dance to the music made by their husbands, usually in the palaces of the gods, and entertain gods and fallen heroes."

The sash was so much trouble to get to stay on. Like most of my modular origami, I try not to use any adhesives, so every time I attached the sash, it would either fall right back off, or take the Apsara's arms with it >.>

This model is quite small, only about 10-12cm tall, so I think it would have used roughly 100-200 modules. (Though I didn't count so I can't be sure).

Concubines...lol, all gods seem to have them.
The white part was supposed to be a dancer's sash, rather thick for one though lol.

Thank you~! ^_^ I think Apsaras are supposed to be young women..? But I guess with a small model like this it'd be difficult to tell lol.

Thanks :D, I wish I could have made the figure more realistic looking, but an hourglass shape is difficult with these modules :S
