Japanese artist and student Takayuki Hori created this awesome (and award-winning) series of eight translucent origami skeletal animals entitled Oritsunagumono, which translates to mean ‘things folded and connected’.

Printed on translucent paper, each piece represents an endangered species native to Japan’s coastal waterways and contains a foreign object inside their body - human-made detritus - representing the environmental threats faced by these animals. They are hauntingly beautiful memento mori for fragile wildlife struggling to cope in a hazardous ecosystem.
