This is a model created by Mr. Eric Gjerde, one of the geniuses when it comes to paper tessellations.
I once showed this photograph to my classmate. She was like “is this
3-D? The squares looked like they are 3D.” I looked at it carefully. I
guess it does look 3D. But what’s really 3D is the Propellerheads
tessellation I will feature later on.
(Looks like it came right out of a Chinese festival.”
Ahaha! I remember my first impression of tessellations. At first, I
was like “Wow this is so amazing! I do not think I could make one like
That impression came because of an incident in making the famed
Kawasaki Rose, which required a twist fold. Well, at least it isn’t as
hard as the “Spring Into Action” model. :P
But look! My second Paper Tessellation! Note that I was also able to complete the rose. I will feature it soon.
