Hey Sara,

Can you make a tutorial on this?

Many thanks

Alex

This peacock is diagrammed in "Genuine Origami" by Jun Maekawa. I just published a video on a rabbit from the same book, so I don't plan to demonstrate another model from the book in the near future. Hope you understand,

Hello

Can you please explain what you have to do in steps 56-58 as i do not understand what you have to do with the paper to lock the fan of the peacock.

Hi there,

Just to let you know that I'm hoping to use your image (above) with full credit on our university Facebook page. Our campus in Perth, Australia has 6 peacocks that live with us and we use pictures of peacocks in our social media messages - I thought this one was a bit different and would be worth sharing. Happy to link back to your site for credit.

Feel free to use the image. I would ask you to include credits as well as a link to this site.
