Day 9 - Origami Honou or Japanese Phoenix
Ah this was bit tough.The complexity is medium.Dont take a very hard paper or it would be really difficult. I would suggest the standard origami paper is the best.
The model is half crane and half origami fan but its not that simple :).You need patience to fold it. I lost a little patience and my phoneix had a few torn parts here and there but not that bad..
Its really nice model.It can be used as decoration piece,you can also make earrings out of it. I have another idea but if I am successful I will post here.
Here is my phoneix.
This link has both diagram and animation.
