We've seen lots of origami over the years, mostly of cute, girly animals. That's why this starkly different piece by Jason Ku really caught our eye. Named after the terrifying dark riders in J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, the Nazgûl were "nine men who succumbed to Sauron's power and attained near-immortality as wraiths, servants bound to the power of the One Ring," according to Wiki.

Ku has been folding since the age of five and began designing origami in high school. Since 2005, he has been the president of MIT's origami club OrigaMIT and teaches regular Workshops on MIT's campus. He is also currently the managing editor for OrigamiUSA's online magazine, The Fold.
