Use of Tyvek paper pieces

The sculpture, created with nearly 380,000 eco-friendly Tyvek paper pieces, shows off a shiny white body and soft fur. It's like a real arctic fox but seven stories high. The use of Tyvek paper, carefully applied by hand, gives the fox a lifelike texture.

"Let's Jump, Arctic Fox" is a perfect example of Florentijn Hofman's unique style—where fun meets grandeur. His ability to make sculptures feel alive is evident here, making the arctic fox a captivating sight in Shanghai.
