One of my first posts on this blog was a model of five intersecting pyramids. Intersecting polyhedra are really popular in origami, but so are intersecting planes. Both are daunting tasks, but I thought, I've already tried one so I may as well try the other, right? See what it's all about. Here's my first attempt: a TUVWXYZ star by Meenakshi Mukerji. Seven six-pointed stars intersect each other. Magical!

The coolest part of the model is that all seven points never fully intersect at one point. In the first image, six of the seven star points are intersecting but you can see one star is not (in that case, it's the light blue one). Yeah, I thought that was pretty funky.
