I was asked to fold an owl, simultaneously, for two completely different purposes. (1) A good mate wanted to give an Owl to someone who had helped him out with some well chosen words of wisdom. (2) During the World Origami Days event organised by MiniNeo, I was challenged to fold an Owl by Sebastien Limet.
Synchronicity. It was meant to be.
Naturally I turned to my favourite owl-form of the moment, a lovely “Horned Owl” by Hideo Komatsu. I decided it needed a perch (for presentation purposes, so used my tree method to form a 3-rooted tree form, using MC to set it in pose and used a simple loop of wire to keep the bird from falling off it’s perch.
Although it is not a first fold, it makes a nice gift and suitable tribute to an interesting celebration of folding.
