A “Bowtie” Expansion of the Truncated Dodecahedron

This polyhedron has the twelve regular decagons and twenty regular triangles of the truncated dodecahedron, but they are moved outwards from the center, and rotated slightly, creating gaps. These gaps are then filled with thirty pairs of isosceles trapezoids in “bowtie” formation. That gives this polyhedron 92 faces in all.
