Paper type : Origami paper

No of units : 30

Paper size : Rectangles of size 3 inch x 6 inch


Note : In step 6, I missed a folding. Instead of mountain folding the point A to the tip and valley folding the sides, I valley folded the sides without mountain folding point A to tip. This way, I got stuck at step 12.

Loved this kusudama, folding was fun.

Dimpled Model with Curls

An interesting observation in the above photo is it causes optical illusion. The central dimple in the front appears to be a pyramid.  It looks like there is a pentagonal pyramid inside a pentagonal bowl where in reality it is actually an elevated pentagonal bowl. This is a good example of optical illusion!
