This Shiba Inu dog by Makoto Yamaguchi is an example of a figurative model folded from two sheets, with one sheet being used for the head and tail and the other for the body and limbs. Such design technique used to be quite popular. Since the two pieces are folded in a completely different manner, it’s hard to classify such designs as modular origami and I prefer to call them compound origami. I originally used the term non-modular multi-sheet for such designs until David Mitchell made me aware of the term compound origami which is much more elegant.
