High Genus Fullerene in Origami

A high genus fullerene in modular origami. Sort of the older brother of the traditional buckyball.

1440 pieces using a variation of Tomoko Fuse's Open frame unit I
Designed and folded by HB (me).

Many thanks for The Beaded Molecules for a lot of the inspiration!

Some process photos after the break. (click in more, on the corner)
