    This an actual photograph, not a CGI construct. I did play a fair amount with color temp and cleaned up the background but its not a composite or what is classically referred to as ‘shopped’

    Origami is one of my passions; I’d love the pattern if it’s something you’d care to share. I’m particularly fond of tessellations, and this strikes me as a very three dimensional one.

    I don’t mind at all, I learned to make these back in high-school and I know i have seen it online. I will look up a link, but it does require square paper. Once you fold the basic form, its just a matter of assembling the pieces.
    6 pieces makes a cube
    12 makes a stellated Octahedron
    30 makes the stellated Icosahedron above
    I understand there is a form made form 90 pieces, but I haven’t attempted that.

    This really strikes a nerve with me, I used to construct all manner of stellations out of paper, toothpicks, wire/solder, etc… This really made for a nice image!

    Thank you.
    If they weren’t so labor intensive I think they’d make a great christmas decoration.
