Beautiful Animal Trophies without Beheading Animals by Papertrophy


“I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it’s such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.”
Ellen DeGeneres.

The fascination of hunting animals has been there since human’s came into existence, be it for survival or for mere adventure killing of wild animals has always been associated with us. We as human’s have always been biased, human killing animals have been considered a sport, but the vice versa of the same is considered brutality. Gunning down these innocent wild animals and then installing/decorating them as trophies makes no sense, although in recent times would have understood the importance of these fellow beings which has cut down such so called adventure sports to a greater extent.

Papertrophy an brain-work of a German designer Dr. Holger Hoffmann, specializes in animal trophies but in a harmonious way. They make Animal trophies and floor figures using paper. Inspired by the classic animal trophies they create complex yet simple polygon structure of animals figurines and wall hanging trophies that reflects the modern design-approach.

The end goal of Papertrophy is not only to perfect the look, but also to ensure that building it will be straightforward and as easy as possible. In the end, I was able to set up every single Papertrophy elegant, yet easy to build.

All these are designed in Berlin, Germany, machine-cut and pre-fold from high quality Eco-friendly paper for precision and quality by local printers, thereafter each paper craft is manually examined to ensure that only perfectly cut and pre-folded models receive the official Papertrophy seal.
