Tatebanko Paper Diorama (Dragon's Lair)

 

Tatebanko, or paper dioramas, often depict traditional scenic perspectives but can be used to create almost any amazing diorama. Uniquely combining two-dimensional materials to create and three-dimensional space, this ancient Japanese art and hobby originated in the Edo period (17th century) and remained popular into the 20 th century before it was nearly forgotten. StormTheCastle.com has revived this wonderful pastime for your enjoyment! Enclosed in this package you will find everything you need to create your very own tatebanko box!

This Tatebanko project is easy to make and looks spectacular. Picture a red dragon sleeping upon his treasure trove in its dark, deep lair with the remains of adventurers past scattered about the cave. Suddenly, it smells something. delicious-it smells a knight-our knight, bravely entering the lair where the awakened dragon is biding his time, waiting in the dark for a hero to emerge and rise to the challenge!

 

 

Here is a front view of the completed project.
