Nissan, Japanese automotive manufacturer is celebrating the fifth anniversary of Juke, its Mini Sport Utility Vehicle in an unusual way. The automaker has teamed up with an origami artist to create a full-size version of Juke out of paper. Designed by British artist Owen Gildersleeve along with some help from model maker Thomas Forsyth, the life-size Origami Nissan Juke is crafted entirely out of folded pieces of paper. Isn’t that amazing!

More than 2000 pieces of paper were folded to complete the full-size paper replica of the vehicle. The paper shell was built on a rigid internal frame. It took the artist over 200 hours to finish the paper car. Besides commemorating Juke’s fifth anniversary, the Origami Paper Sculpture of the crossover also marks the milestone of selling more than 700,000 models of the car. Well, that is quite an achievement for a unique celebration.
