Origami model + reflection = skull

This amazing origami model, which appears to be a skull when resting on a mirror, was designed in the late 90s by renowned paper-folding artist Herman Van Goubergen, who seems to have no web presence of his own. The upper model was made and photographed by Flickr user M_V_origami. Instructions for folding the model are included in OrigamiUSA’s 1999 annual collection, which is available for sale here.
