Triangles appear everywhere is this design, both flat and three-dimensionally. D Nile  is assembled from hundreds of small shapes composed in two different patterns but in the same colour way.  A path has been cut through the middle where a line of origami has been attached.  The origami are made from hand painted vellum paper growing is size as they tumble towards a larger paper painted container.  Copper sheeting triangles have been strategically inserting and attached to the surface.
