Cerberus, the mythical three-headed dog

This is my version of Cerberus, the three-headed dog of Greek and Roman mythology which guards the underworld. A master’s version, particularly by Robert J. Lang, is featured in Jay Ansill’s Origami Sourcebook. According to this book, Lang made us of John Montroll’s dog base to create the model.

For my version above, the base is the one used for my pig model which utilizes the 30-degree angle. This conveniently provides the flaps for the heads as well as for the rear legs and tail. I used construction paper, but instead of cutting it to make a square sheet, I used the “excess” portion for grafting which i find necessary to strengthen the flaps for the rear legs and tail.
