In The Arrival, by Shaun Tan, the protagonist makes origami, including this bird.

Can that figure actually be folded, as drawn? Or did the author just draw something vaguely origami-ish?


Looking at Robert J. Lang's Opus 822, Northern Mockingbird, it's entirely possible to create a base for a bird model that incorporates flaps for head, wings, tail, and legs. How easy it might be to do without being Lang or knowing a technique to create a base with the appropriate flaps for those features (e.g., circle-packing), I don't know.
