This tessellation is closely related to my Square Interlace Tessellation. Grid is 8×8 per molecule. Here you can see the variant with long propeller blades but there is also a short-blade variant.

Designed and folded by me from a single sheet of black Khepera paper.

This image was scanned rather than photographed. For this particular tessellation, I found the scan much better than the photograph: lighting is very uniform and the scanner was able to reproduce the textured black color of the model much better than my photo camera could.

In October 2022, I received from Roberto Morassi pictures of some models folded by Shuzo Fujimoto, and among them was one using molecules exactly like this design (mixed with molecules of Stars and Squares), which means this design is yet another example of my model that Fujimoto had designed much earlier. I later matched it to CFW 54.
