Plumes of Perfection: the paper art of the Makerie

 This extraordinary peacock is made from paper.
Crafted carefully by The Makerie
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
Shepherds Bookbinders,
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!
