Two-in-one flower tessellation

There is only one kind of molecule in this origami tessellation, but depending on how you look, you can see two different kinds of flowers here, hence the name “two in one”. Each molecule requires an 8×8 grid.

 

I used this model to test a sheet of paper which at first I thought to be Rhinoceros Hide paper. Some time later I realized it was actually Golden River Leather paper.

 

So, in the end this review pertains to Golden River Leather paper. I really liked folding a tessellation with it. The paper is a bit glossy which made taking a picture without any reflections hard, but in real life it looks beautiful. Folding was also pleasant and my feeling is this paper allowed me to fold finer details than Elephant Hide would at the same grid size and it felt considerably thinner. While I still thought this was Rhino Hide paper, I saw a contrast with the data presented in Ilan Garibi’s review which suggests Rhino Hide should be thicker than Elephant Hide - knowing that it was actually Golden River, I find my results consistent with Ilan’s review.
