Modular origami is a paper craft where individual sheets of paper are folded into identical shapes and fitted together to create a larger shape.

Yes, I am a member of the left-handed artists community even if the fact that I am left-handed has probably no influence on my works (or perhaps I can fold faster with my left hand
So the theme is “opposites”. At first, I wanted to do two dragons fighting each other, but on second thought I said to myself “Do I really have to do two creatures?” (No, it’s not because I was too lazy…) As it is said in the journal “There are two sides to every coin: good and evil, day and night, law and chaos, left and right.” So I think that opposites can be reunited in one and only creature. It is the case of gender for example, we tend to oppose femininity to masculinity but we all have some attributes of masculinity and femininity despite our anatomy… Hmm, all that to say that the theme made me think of a lot of things.
I did a work some times ago that could have been submitted to this contest. My two swans of fire and ice. [link]
That is why I have decided to do another creature this time.
So here is my little dragon, you can think that one half is fire the other is ice, one is male the other is female, one is evil the other is good or you can simply think that one is made with hot colors and the other with cold colors… (that’s a prosaic interpretation but it does not really matter).
