QUADRAMID I – 3d Derivative – Inspired by the Great Pyramid at Giza

From a 3d model, I created a structure of 289 multi-colored blocks with multi-colored sloping fins at 51.5 degrees (the angle of slope of the Great Pyramid of Giza). It began with 545 blocks forming a pyramid but I removed 64 blocks from each corner, leaving behind diamond shaped sections and triangular openings.
