Bug Wars

Bug Wars

The Bug Wars were origami contests among members of the Origami Detectives which started when one member made a bug, a horned beetle with outspread wings, from a single sheet of paper: this design provoked other members to design more complex origami in the shape of bugs, such as wasps and praying mantises.
