May you make lots of Moo-ney this coming Chinese New Year !

Moo-ooo...There is an Australian slang called "Wait till the cows come home".  I guess you may have heard this phrase in some movies. The meaning is to wait for all day.

This is a very nice cow, with different spots on each side, together with horns and ears, even the udder. The model is designed by Noboru Miyajima and diagrammed in Origami Tanteidan Convention Book 5. I folded it with 250x250mm black color paper.

Chinese New Year coming soon...

The Chinese New Year is just around the corner and 2009 is the year of the Earth Ox. Some will refer it is as Year of the Cow or Bull. Below are the explanation of each of the word.
Bull = Uncastrated adult male of domestic cattle
Ox = An adult castrated bull
Cow = Female of domestic cattle

Anyway, there are a number of diagrams for the above animal (Maybe it is hard to differentiate between the bull and the ox in the origami model =). First, its the Bull model in Tanteidan Convention Book 11, designed by Stephan Weber, folded from a 250x250 mm brown color paper.

Guess everyone is hoping for a bullish stock market this year and the economy will recover soon. Hope everything will get better within this year.

Next, I will fold the Cow before Chinese New Year. So, stay tuned...
