i stumbled across this while procrastinating

It looks cool, but I don't think you can spin it ;). I'll have to give it a try to make one. Looks like there's many pieces, not only one...

It looks like a tesselation to me, which will be made out of 1 piece of paper. The crease pattern is also printed on the paper, which would suggest that it's a template that somebody has found on the internet. Good luck looking!

John, amazed his origami knowledge would come in handy on this forum
