Fantastic Beasts and where to find them


Dor Posner sent me some photos from a summer camp in Israel. I'm waiting to hear back from him with some more information about these constructions, but to get started here's a photo of a pioneered hedgehog- each spine is a quadpod wrapped in fabric and attached to the frame of the animal. Not for the faint of heart, I suppose this took a troop a couple of days to build. But if you want to make your scouts nervous hand them this picture and tell them they have 1 hour to build it...

The Statue of Liberty, the Sphinx, Santa Claus (with reindeer), Garfield and a dragon complete with Chinese temple will follow as soon as I can tell you a little more about how these incredible structures were made.

UPDATE: More info and photos here
