Two folds of my Sunk Star Box with different twisting directions, side by side. Wherever there’s a twist in origami, we get two possible versions of the fold, one rotating clockwise and the other counterclockwise. Mirror symmetry (chirality) plays an important role in physics, chemistry and biology, and as this picture illustrates, is also often found in origami models.
