Karakuri are mechanized puppets or automata from Japan dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The word "Karakuri" means a "mechanical device to tease, trick, or take a person by surprise." Japanese designer Keisuke Saka created this papercraft kit series filled with surprises and a dose of dark humor. Hesitation is an innovative aviator who seems to doubt his flying machine. Mr. Saka is one of Japan's most honored paper engineers. His thoughtfully rendered designs use the fewest moving parts to communicate their magical, elegant movement. Cutting, folding and gluing required in assembly. Each one takes less than two hours of time to complete. Completely instructions included. Surprisingly robust if correctly built.
Packaging: Packed in a 8 1/2" x 11" sleeve with a colorful cover.
