Traditional Origami Crown Modified

Level

Beginner

Copyright Hyo Ahn

 

This crown model is motivated from the traditional origami crown. The outlook is the same but this model has a different property compared to the traditional one. The tradtional model has a multiple of 180 degrees rotational symmetry about z-axis. This means that you get the same crown when you rotate the model by 180 degrees. If you roate the model by 90 degrees, then you will not get the same model. The modified model has a multiple of 90 degrees rotational symmetry about z-axis. So you will get the same model when you rotate it by 90 degrees. It is a fun to compare these two model and study their properties.
