This tessellation is designed by Shuzo Fujimoto.
It is also a tessellation, but it’s a different type. It is what we call a Recursive Tessellation. This model is a very famous example of it.
Recursive Tessellation is a type of tessellation where the same design
of the entire model keeps appearing in the middle onwards. For example,
the model will still look the same even if you cut off the 4 large
petals of the model.
It is easy to fold this model IF you are folding the
largest flower design (ugh…so hard to choose the right words…) but when
the part you have to work on keeps smaller and smaller, you have to be
more careful or else, RIP goes your crapped-up model.

I used construction paper in the model above, but for the beginners, I recommend THIN PAPER first before working with thick paper like construction paper.
