Wondering about Origami

You just never know what you are going to find at the flea market.  I have told you about some of the great things I have found from paper cutters to telescopes, but yesterday I just had to purchase a piece of art.  It is, I believe, what you call Origami.  At first I could not figure out how it was made or what it was made out of, but I knew it was beautiful and unusual (at least to me).  The dealer said it was made out of paper and it was origami.  What ever, I just had to take it home with me and when he said it was two dollars, I grabbed it.  Here are some pictures of it.  The first one is of it sitting upright:
In this next picture, I laid it down on its side and took a shot from the bottom of the object:
And this last picture is looking straight down from the top looking down inside of it.  It is just so intricate; I just can not imagine how it was made!
That was my only purchase for the day, my wife of course, found lots of things to bring home. Well, we will be heading back there again in a little while. I wonder what we may find today.

Update on my tooth extraction. I will finish up the anti-biotic today and the swelling to my jaw seems to be subsiding. It is healing as it should.

You all have a great day now, you hear?


  1. Very mysterious. I'd hate to make one for $2.

  2. Shoot Dizzy,, You may have a major piece of History!!! Better get hold of an expert and get some advice.

    Just remember all us little folks when you hit it big. :-)

  3. Think I'd get some glass to put it under. Trying to keep that dusted could be a real pain in the butt!

  4. Love it too. $2 was a steal. Does it have something sprayed on it, to help hold it's shape? How big is it? Like, tall, wide? Just wondering what kind of glass thing it would fit under.

  5. G L Duck, no way would I make it for two bucks. If I could figure out how to do it, it would probably still take me a year or more.

    Ben, I bought it because I liked it. But, just for the fun of it, will check on its value if I can find it. Ben, Ben who?? I don’t know any Ben. . .

    David, yeah it would be hard to dust.

    Trouble, yeah it was a steal. Don’t know if it was sprayed with something or not. Do not see any runs or anything to say one way or the other. The size is 5” tall by 5” long by 3” wide.

  6. My lovely wife and I spent time in retail land today. I am a stranger in a strange land. There is a tourist town down the road with outlet shopping. I got away cheap with us only buying one item each, and it stuff we were looking for.

    However, paying $2 on something interesting is a deal.

  7. 6bears, when I searched on line I found one very similar that had a selling price of $49.95. Yep, it was a deal.

  8. Glad that your mouth is feeling better now.

    What a lovely find. Someone had a lot of patience and experience to make such an intricate bird.

    Sorry, I don't often comment as there is something different about blogger, and it is only the blogs with pop-out comment windows that work most of the time.
