I believe anyone having watched a few episodes of “Prison break” would know about the little origami bird made by Michael Scofield. Although I am not a big fan of the TV series, the origami bird did catch my eyes. According to Mr Y who watched every episode, it’s supposed to be a crane as Michael got a page for “Michael Crane” from Sara in the latest episode. However, in my opinion, it would be really sad for a crane to have such short wings. Many people called the little bird “duck”, while I would rather consider it a swan, which can be as beautiful as love. Of course, it must be weird if Michael Scofield is called Michael “Duck” or Michael “Swan”.
The pattern was from online. After folding, I found a clip showing the “crane” from Prison break. The bird’s head in TV is a little different from what I got, and the body and wings look fine. I gave the bird to Mr Y as “Valentine’s day” gift. 😀 He started dropping the bird to see if the bird can land smoothly. (In case you don’t know, the crane was used originally by Michael as a tool to investigate the underground pipes in the prison. It must be able to land on the water with head up and then flow through the pile for quite a while.) Unfortunately, over 80% of our bird’s landings failed. In conclusion, Michael Scofield is not only smart but also extremely lucky. Otherwise, he wont be able to break out.
Crane is a popular “transportation tool” for immortals in traditional Chinese stories/myths. Therefore, I think it would interesting to give my little panda a nice ride. However, he is not patient at all.:-P After the nice trip, the little panda had a rest in my hand.
