Crease Pattern Challenge 032

Crease Pattern Challenge, Origami

Challenge 32, Takashi Hojyo’s Gabriel (Version 3), is another model that I made a while ago, took a couple of pictures of, then lost it. So, here are two Gabriels. At least I like Mr. Hojyo’s models a lot.

This is another one of his models (like the Geistkämpher; wait, the Geistkämpher isn’t until Challenge 51? I thought I already covered that one.) that I tend to get a little carried away with and miss a polarity flip. This one is easier to catch, so I don’t usually miss it. It causes the lower half to be the flip side of the paper. This is most clear in the more yellow model.

Hojyo says the angel is like one from an Annunciation by Botticelli, so I’m thinking the middle part in his arms is part of his robe. I’ve always folded it like something he was holding, such as tablets. Hojyo’s Gabriel has the more cloth-like version.
