@radiantx: ahh true that, sorry for that mispelling, however I think the reasoning still applies.

Re-veal? To turn vegetarian?

JackAsser: Except "reveil" isn't a word. "Reveal" is, though. :-P

@Oswald: "Matematiker avslöjade koden till islamska mönster" => "Mathematician cracked the code to islamic patterns"

However the swedish word "avslöja" and the english word "reveil" are quite fun in this context since both "slöja" and "veil" are the name of the cloth commonly worn by islamic women to conceal their hair. ;D To re-veil or to av-slöja, means to remove the veil/slöja.

Deekay, have a look here, my model i've just discovered is not as complex as i thought it was.

@swedish bums: Intresant artikel på IDG som jag läste för ett par veckor sedan: http://www.dn.se/DNet/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=597&a=624870

Saehn: Bah, that's not folding, that's cutting! ;-) How lame!.. If I ever make something from paper with scissors, it's gonna be more something like this! Ghibli ftw! ;-D

Deekay, I've never seen a modular origami model for this polyhedron, but here are instructions for making one out of paper: http://www.korthalsaltes.com/compound_of_five_cubes.htm

And Sander/Frantic, I think you're correct. "Islamic tiling" is the first thing that occurred to me when I looked at the background, too. I'm certain that it's not a net of the polyhedron.

Very najs - Looks like a Kusudama! ;-)
It's certainly not Sonobe-based, so yes, Fatfrost, I would very much like the instructions on how to make it, because I can only do Sonobe (but large varieties thereof atleast! 8)
I really like the background - please do notice how the 3d-object was "torn" out of the green area (which should be dithered), into which its outlines just fit nicely...

@Frantic, iirc it's a traditional Turkish pattern. (edit: i was referring to stuff like this, guess we both meant the same thing. but mirage said it's really a polyhedra pattern.. so i guess we were both wrong ;)

Isn't this that old islamic art trick? (Referring to the background.)

Very nice, Joe. This easily trounces my simplistic Platonic solid. I declare a geometry war! ;)
