Origami Bucky Ball Flower

According to goldennumber.net:
"Bucky Balls are named after Buckminster Fuller, who popularized the geodesic dome.  The shape defined by Bucky Balls is also found in the Carbon 60 molecule, a form of pure carbon with 60 atoms in a nearly spherical configuration, the truncated icosahedron and soccer balls."
This origami flower is based on the same geometry as a Bucky Ball. Ninety individual "petals" are attached together to create the flower. Video instructions to create your own flower are located here. Build photo by DeviantART member Art-in-Murder.
