Origami Harpy by user-name-not-found Origami Harpy by user-name-not-found
An origami Harpy. Was actually meant to be an angel, but the paper I used was MUCH TOO thick, and the face came out like a beak.


And now comes the time for some information, this time from godchecker . com

"Also known as HARPYIAI, HARPYIA


These are demonic winged women with beaks and claws, into punishment, torture and death. Starting off as stormy Tornado Goddesses, they were originally fair-haired and beautiful, but soon realised this did not really project the right image. One quick makeover and they became screechy, scratchy, vicious and downright unsavoury in every way.

The daughters of THAUMAS and ELECTRA, their names are AELLO, CELAENO and OCYPETE (but see AELLO's entry for a possible fourth Harpy). They are mentioned in many tales as snatchers and grabbers of people, and so far only the BOREADS have ever managed to get the better of them.

The HARPIES can fly at the speed of sound, and one of their favorite tricks is to defecate upon the unworthy from a great height. It's not aeroplane toilets you should blame when frozen lumps of crap fall out of the sky… "
