french artist and paper designer mlle hipolyte has recreated a ‘tropical jungle’ using pieces of vibrantly colored paper, cut entirely by hand. the mural replicates the lush and diverse assortment of botanical life and greenery found in a rainforest environment. simply shapes leaves of varied dimensions and species are carefully layered onto each other, forming a vibrant and intricate background wallpaper. circular leaf formations draw viewers into the five, three-dimensional animal figures incorporated into the composition. a red panda, a panther and three birds have been meticulously crafted with miniature paper pieces, which wrap around a geometric model of each creature’s portrait and frame.
