A Rotating Great Rhombicosidodecahedron, with Spinning Mandalas On Its Faces

This polyhedron is also known as the truncated icosidodecahedron. However, I prefer the name which appears in the title of this post.

I made the image which appears on each face with Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint, and then used Stella 4d to project this image onto each face of this polyhedron, and create this rotating .gif image.

If you’d like to try Stella 4d for free, just visit this site: http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. To my knowledge, a free trial download is only available for Stella 4d, but not for the other programs mentioned above.
