44 (7/26): Kawasaki twist

August 19, 2011

Several famous origami roses, most of them designed by Toshikazu Kawasaki, use the back side of a square twist as the basis for the center of the rose. Here, the square twist is all that I folded. Then I pushed the four corners towards the center while holding them flat and helping the center rotate. I was trying to see how far this would go without any additional creases.
