Mens et Manus (Mind and Hand) A variant of the MIT logo, showing a blacksmith with his hammer, a scholar with his book, and a central pillar with books and what I think is a magic lamp thing like the one Aladdin had. It symbolizes the synergy of mind and hand- the theoretical and practical, an idea that is also found at the essence of origami. This was one of my entries for the 2005 MIT Origami Competition.

Folded from "Bienfang" tracing/sketching paper
