named by the Shumakovs
This base is rarely enumerated in the line of the origami bases. But it is very fruitful base for creation of volumetric berries, vegetables, fruits and other plants. Because of it the Shumakovs named this form as the fruit base. It uses the square base as its foundation. And, it is the foundation for a frog base. In the practical lessons you will meet the some models, which use the fruit base as its foundation.
