Asterisk Tessellation

I obsessed over this idea for a while before I finally came up with a working solution.

Somehow it seemed much cooler in my mind that it does in pictures.

It was kinda tricky to execute. I did the hex twists on the back first. Then I pushed out the spaces between the pointy rectangles.

Some double wide triangles on the back were coaxed into place with a few small folds to allow the hexes to remain flat.

It's a nice pattern, but I was disappointed with how it backlit.

On the plus side, I've not encountered it before. So, it may be new, or at least, uncommon.
