Little White Peacock in a Field of Colour by 


Walking through the pollen of a flower;
That is how the peacock got its color!

My origami calendar

Folded white peacock in a gerbera daisy field.

I hope people aren’t tired of my origami; but I needed to do this before the flower dies; my mom brought some flowers back from a wedding two weekends ago, and when I saw this particular gerbara, I really wanted to create this image because the centre of this flower looked like a field.

The folded peacock is comprised of two piece of paper: one for the body, the other for the tail. The body is made from a 6×6mm paper, and the tail I faned out of a circle about 1cm in diameter which I cut a slit through.

The peacock walks through a field of colour and gets pollen on itself; and that is how the peacock got its color!

Taken with and Olympus FE-220

A close-up of the flower’s center looked like a field with a flower growing in it. So this inspired me to create my own myth about how the peacock got its colours :-)

For a better idea of scale
