Emperor by synconi Emperor by synconi
A friend asked me to fold him a peacock after our exams finished and, almost two months later, here he is!

A delightfully simple model from my childhood, created by the legend Yoshizawa, and I added a little embellishment in the form of crest feathers. This lovely paper I found when sorting out my bedroom last week- it was the inner layer of an envelope from Irene =P

Thank you for looking!

:heart:


+ Two 6 x 6cm squares and a 1 x 1cm square of Irene's envelope-lining-paper
+ Final model is 7.2cm across
+ Diagrammed in Akira Yoshizawa's "Origami Tokuhon I"
+ Commissions
