Chambered Nautilus


Origami Chambered Nautilus

While Kawasaki's Rose initially caught my attention, no artist has held it for as long, or for as many models, as Robert Lang. I view him as a role model since his book Origami Design Secrets is the only reason I have been able to create my own designs. This is my favorite out of his models - the mathematical significance should be obvious (I am a high school math teacher), and the way in which the tail locks into the body is simply amazing.  Diagrams are available in Origami Sea Life, by John Montroll and Robert J. Lang.
