Epiphany Tessellation

An origami tessellation for the Feast of Epiphany. Single sheet of Gampi paper, no cutting or glue. Wet folding was used for the coma of the Stars of Bethlehem / comets.


This tessellation waited almost a year between the start of precreasing and final collapse. During that time, I reworked the design and was able to simplify it without affecting visual quality. The models which led to this design are: Epiphany II, designed two years ago, and Box with Shooting Star of 1½ years ago.
