Origami Bucky Ball Flower

According to
"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.
