The Pajarita (little bird in Spanish) is one of European traditional origami models, especially popular in Spain and Spanish-speaking countries.

I had real trouble classifying this model as figurative since it’s hard to spot any resemblance to an actual bird (or any recognizable beast or object, for that matter). Still, based on the name, I will give it the benefit of the doubt and assume it was actually supposed to represent a little bird. This is an example of a situation where the model’s classification, even into categories as broad as figurative and abstract origami, may depend on information external to the model itself, such as the designer’s intent.

I have designed a Pajarita Tessellation which consists of small images of this model on a plane.
