This is designed by Christiane Bettens, and the instructions are found in the book “Origami Tessellations” authored by Eric Gjerde.
This has been one of the hardest tessellations I have succeeded with.
the result is also very small compared to the size of the paper I have
started with. This is one of the characteristics that makes the
tessellation a bit cute :D
The story behind its creation is that Bettens visited a church in
Rome, and the churches in Rome are VERY BEAUTIFUL. (I’m going to be an
architecture student…) She got inspired by the floor designs of a
church, so out from her creativity came this:
The tessellation really looks nice, and complicated. In the book, it
is labelled as “Intermediate”, so do you think I will be able to do the
advanced projects??? crap…. -_-
