During his investigation in Blade Runner 2049 Officer K visits an old Gaff in a retirement home. And of course Gaff can't help but make one of his origami figures during the conversation with K. Now in the original 1982 Blade Runner Gaff's origami were quite a characteristic habit of this enigmatic figure, with much a meaning behind them, especially the famous unicorn origami from the ending.
While the film surely doesn't run short of callbacks to the original, it doesn't lack the ambition to continue and expand the original's universe, story and themes either. So this keeps me wondering what the origami in the new film actually represented (and what it was to begin with). It seemed to me to be some kind of ox or cow, if I remember correctly. Is that accurate? And what did it mean beyond a mere callback to good ole Gaff and one of the many mysterious details from the original Blade Runner?
