A “Bowtie” Variant of the Truncated Icosahedron

This has the twelve regular pentagons and twenty regular hexagons of a truncated icosahedron (most familiar to the world as the shape upon which most soccer balls are based), but also has pairs of trapezoids in “bowtie” configurations. I discovered this polyhedron using Stella 4d, which you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/stella.php.
