And always let your conch shells be your guide

Currently designing and finding models for a book about Origami & Buddhism. One of the symbols used by Buddhists is a conch shell, I’m told. I started with shell techniques established by Lang & Fuse, then stripped them right back to minimise complexity (which would seem suitable for the subject matter). I’m still not sure whether to round off the final two corners of the spiral or not.
