Flat paper folded and creased can be transformed into incredibly miraculous 3D forms known as origami. These three are a hexahedron, octahedron, and icosahedron; they are all examples of modular origami. Each of these modular origami are comprised from multiple pieces of identically folded paper, which when assembled morph into a single model. The plastic 3MO = PT represents 'three modular origami equals paper transformed'.
