How to make an Orca (Shachi) from a plastic straw in 12 steps







You might not think you could create a creature as powerful as the 鯱 (pronounced “shachi,” which means “killer whale,” or “orca” in Japanese) out of a plastic straw, but you can. Follow along with this step-by-step guide to make your own delicate orca.

(Note that 鯱 鉾 can also be pronounced “shachi-hoko,” and refers to a mythological animal which has the head of a dragon and the body of a carp. Temples and castles in Japan were commonly decorated with shachi-hoko ornaments, because it was believed that the mythical animal could elicit rain and would thus protect the building in case of a fire.)
