After viewing the first version of the biwa sister in the shadow box, I felt like she took up too much space and would be looking the opposite way from Lady Nijo. Her biwa was also kind of awkwardly posed. After much inner debate, I decided to make another version, which took 1 hour to make. Like the original her pose is based on old paintings.

Working on a creative project for medieval Japan class. This is probably the hardest origami art pieces I've ever done to date! The piece should be composed of two sisters playing the koto and biwa for a Japanese Buddhist nun.
