The Think Big Chief website brings to attention the realistic bird paper models created by Dutch artist Johan Scherft. What you see above is an exact paper replica of a real bird.

All the birds shown on this page are three dimensional models, I made from thin paper. They are lifesize, and very realistic in colour and detail. I make the birds (and other animals) from paper templates. The templates are handcoloured with watercolour and gouache before assembling.
Some of the birds are scanned before putting together. In this way I can make a few birds, using the same design.
