A Polyhedral Snowman

A Polyhedral Snowman

We’re out of school today because of an ice storm, and I wanted to make a snowman. However, we got very little snow — mostly freezing rain and sleet fell — so I can’t make a traditional snowman. Also, it’s really cold outside. So, instead, I stayed inside, where it’s warm, and made a polyhedral snowman out of (from top to bottom) an icosahedron, an icosidodecahedron, and a rhombicosidodecahedron.
