This tessellation is based on the sunk square twist pattern (visible in one of the images: it is the stage before shaping any of the molecules into flower shapes). It features four different water lily molecules. Certainly many more variants are possible.

Designed and folded by me. Grid was 40×40 which is a bit small for 25 cm paper so the details are folded less than perfectly. Each molecule is 6×6 grid units, with one unit of margin on each side.

I folded the prototype for this model while on a flight and gave it to my seat neighbor. This way the prototype ended up in Norway.
