Featuring bare trees against blankets of white, his beautiful winterscapes visually present the quiet stillness of the season.

The newest series by Manila-based paper artist Patrick Cabral (previously) features three white  animals detailed with elements of black and gold. A pink nose serves as a stylistic outlier for a  whiskered tiger, while the long and narrow trunk of Cabral’s elephant is completed with a dazzling linear adornment in gold. The animal’s design is similar to a previous elephant iteration Cabral created out of paper in 2017. However, the newer piece’s
