An Icosahedron Variant Featuring Kite-Stars

An Icosahedron Variant Featuring Kite-Stars

This variant of the icosahedron has five kites meeting at each of its twelve vertices, forming what I call the twelve “kite-stars” of this polyhedron. Also, two kites meet at the midpoint of each of the icosahedron’s thirty edges. The emplacement of the kites changes the triangular faces of the icosahedron into equilateral, but non-equiangular, hexagons.
