Plumes of Perfection: the paper art of the Makerie
This extraordinary peacock is made from paper.
The White Omar is a magnificent bird,
designed as a shopwindow display
for a boutique in London.
The white version is a play on this earlier work.
"The Great Omar" is indeed a very fine fellow, too,
having magnificently coloured plumes.
He was made to sit in the window of
paper merchants in Holborn, London.
All the papers have been sourced from the shop itself.
Most of The Makerie's paper artworks are
commissioned for shop windows.
I can barely begin to imagine just how many
hours of painstaking cutting, gluing & arranging
have gone into these plumes of perfection!
