Rhombus Flower Pyramid Flagstone

Rhombus and Flagstone Origami Tessellation
This tessellation is a reverse engineer from a photo I had saved several years ago. I found it sitting in one of my google photo archives. It had been there a while and I had forgotten about it.

I believe I tried to solve it once before when I'd originally saved it, but hadn't been successful. 

So upon discovering it anew, I decided to try again. This time I had no trouble at all unravelling its secrets. It's amazing how much you'll learn in a year or two of steadily working with origami tessellations. Things that once seemed impossibly out of reach, now are almost second nature. 

It's actually a flagstone on its back side, although the rhombus/hex flowers on the front side are really the star of the show in my opinion.

The flagstone side is a hexagon of triangles and then large pyramids. 

I don't know who the original designer is. Like I said, I saved the photo several years ago and did not note where I found it. 

It looks like something that might be a Joel Cooper, but I can't be sure.
