Rolling Stones Origami Tessellation

 


The idea for this tessellation came from solving a few different ones by gatheringfolds. A different take on some common origami tessellation elements. 

It features small hex twists with alternating triangles off of them. The triangles alternate between front and back. 

It also has some pyramids and another common tessellation shape whose name I don't know. It's all illustrated in the crease pattern sketch at the bottom of this post. 

It's a symmetrical tessellation. The front and back are mirror images of each other. 

It feels very familiar, but I don't believe I've seen it before. That's not to say it hasn't been done before. Just that I don't think I've seen it myself prior to having conceived of it. 

It's nice how many repetitions fit on a 32 pleat grid.
