Poem by Vicente Solorzano Sagredo in Caras y Caretas, May 1938

This poem by Vicente Solorzano Sagredo, and its accompanying illustrations of his paperfolds, was pubished in the Buenos Aires edition of 'Caras y Caretas' on 21st May 1938. The poem is about a boy who (in the author's dream) folds a sheet of paper to make the figures of a wolf, a vulture, a crocodile, a vampire bat, a guanaco and St Francis of Assisi. The horse shown at lower right is not mentioned. As far as I knowno other 'Cuentos de Papirolas' poems were published.

The poem refers to the figures of folded animals as 'deltoiditas' as well as 'papirolas', which are both terms invented by the author.
