Origami Pegasus in Irving, Texas (Hero's Horse)

Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. Artists take ordinary paper and fold in in such a way that it comes alive as an extraordinary three-dimensional animal, flower, useable box, or any one of a myriad of objects. This Texas roadside attraction is just that: only it’s made of different materials and at quite a larger scale than most.

The 21-foot tall sculpture is fabricated to look like a giant pegasus (the mythical winged horse of from Greek mythology) and made with powder-coated fabricated steel made to mimic the look and color of the traditional delicate paper folds of the craft.

Officially titled the “Hero’s Horse Monument” the sculpture is the work of artist Kevin Box in collaboration with Robert J. Lang and was unveiled on this intersection in Irving, Texas in 2014.

FOLD your horses and slow down your car to be sure to catch a glimpse of this roadside oddity. And in CREASE you’re wondering where to park in order to see it, don’t worry, there’s a big parking lot right behind the sculpture at AMN Healthcare.
