1062: Omicron

Having recently purchased a bumper pack of 6″ duo paper, I was itching to fold something with it. Given we are in a new wave of Covid-19 (Omicron), I thought a virus-like kusudama was in order:

Xander Perrott's "Minaret"

This is Xander Perrott’s lovely modular design “Minaret”, a 30-piece ball of wonder.

Each piece is based on a 1: root(3) proportioned rectangles, intricately collapsed into beams with tabs/pockets on each end.

I decided on red-yellow bicolour paper, and after it began to come together it echoed much-used graphics of corona virus adequately.

Folded from Xander’s book “Folded Forms”, it is one of many jewels I have yet to attempt from that publication.

I hope you are all keeping yourself and your families safe and well – strange times these Pandemic years.
