Making a tessellation representing boats on the sea had been on my mind for quite some time when I finally came up with this design. It represents not just any boat, but the origami paper boat, a simple model which probably almost everyone has folded as a child. Perhaps we should introduce the term meta-origami for origami which represents other origami?

Here, the molecule is placed on a box, but it can also be tessellated.
