Origami Markhor

More detailed crease pattern to show where to pleat the neck. Markhor is a type of mountain goat found in Central Asia. They have curly horns which can vary from simple twist to a tight corkscrew. The male has long and shaggy mane, similar to lion. I had idea to design a markhor after finishing my ibex and folded Kaito Nagayama's chameleon, whose eyes are made by wedged pleats to form spiral. So what if I use the same technique on goat's horn? It worked in theory and my test fold on foil (shown later in this post), but not on the final fold. In the end I just curl the horn.
