The tessellation molecule decorating this box is one of many similar patterns I designed after my visit to CfC conference in Zaragoza in February 2020. While sightseeing in the Aljafería castle, I stumbled upon an interesting floor tile pattern, and set out to design a similar tessellation in origami. Soon after I came back, the pandemic arrived, and I was distracted from those projects. The name of this tiling, Greek Cross and Squares IV is not apparent when you look at the box, which has only a single molecule, but if you tessellate it and put no additional spacing between the molecules, you do get a pattern of crosses and squares. This is slightly different from the pattern I saw on the floor, which has crosses and squares of two different sizes.
