Another attempt at folding the subject of Star of Bethlehem, this time using the Lucky Star molecule (invented independently with Fujimoto, Haligami and many others). In order to fold this model cleanly, I devised a non-standard method of constructing the 60 degree angle — slightly less precise than the classical methods used in folding a hexagon from a rectangle or from a square, but leaving no marks behind (if the paper is flexible enough).

Epiphany III is, obviously, the big model in the center. The one on the left is Just Stars and the one on the right is Maltese Cross.

I had some doubts on how to classify this model: the star is a tessellation molecule, but the model as a whole is not even though it is flat and looks like a tessellation at first glance. Maybe I should consider the tail a kind of decorated frame around the tessellation?

This is a large model, folded from an almost complete B1 sheet of Fabriano Accademia 120 gsm paper which I found at a local art supply store. You can read my review in a separate blog post.
