Rhombicosidodecahedral Cluster of Rhombic Triacontahedra

Rhombicosidodecahedral Cluster of Rhombic Triacontahedra

Since rhombic triacontahedra can form pentagonal rings, triangular rings, and square rings, I wanted to find out if a rhombicosidodecahedron could be built out of these building blocks. As you can see here, the attempt was a success. Each rhombic triacontahedron which appears here is located at the vertex of a rhombicosidodecahedron.
