Here’s another one I came up with. I don’t remember why, but I was trying to come up with a pentagon within a square radiating out from a point higher than center. I figured out a good way to put one in that only takes a little feeling out (that is, I found reference points only a little away from where it was necessary to fold).

I gave up trying to use a pentagon for whatever it was, but I still wanted to use the oddly placed pentagon for something. I had extra paper for a long point that eventually became the trunk, but I still don’t know what made me think of an elephant. Maybe Ganesh? He seems like a cool guy anyway.
