Those big round things aren’t circles. They are regular thirty-sided polygons, or triacontagons.
I found this using software you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/stella.php. It’s one of the many stellations of the dual of the truncated octahedron.
As you can see, this can be continued indefinitely from the center.
The rhombic enneacontahedron has 90 faces; 30 are narrow rhombi (hidden here), and 60 are wider rhombi (decorated with the op art piece from two posts ago). Software credit: see the polyhedral software I used at http://www.software3d.com/stella.php — free trial … Continue reading
