Black Lotus, a Sherlock prop

A beautiful, Origami black lotus was made by the prop department for a BBC Sherlock episode (Series 1, Episode 1).

Sadly, I lacked black paper.  So, I opted for a flowered pattern which did nothing to bring out the final design.  The absence of any folding skill on my part resulted in a folding mess.

The Sherlockology website  instructions did not convey the challenge of folding the model.  Even when I turned to a YouTube teacher, it did not help.

A simple design, ha!  Not “elementary” at all!
