Making momos of artful and fancy shapes: can someone tell me how to?

Momo or Dimsum is a dumpling common all over east asia. The basic idea is to take a wrapper( thin small pancake of dough), stuff it with a mixture of meat and vegetables and steam it. Eaten hot with any sauce, preferably pungent. I want to see momos/dimsums of artful and fancy shapes, and the technique of making them.

Me too! I've tried this before, but find making all those little folds to be pretty hard. Also, the nuances of shaping are often lost when you steam or fry them.
