Faced-Based Zonish Versions of the Icosahedron and the Icosidodecahedron

Faced-Based Zonish Versions of the Icosahedron and the Icosidodecahedron

I’ve had some success lately finding near-misses to the Johnson solids by making face-based zonish versions of various polyhedra. These were found during that search, and are certainly not near-misses, but I still find them interesting, primarily due to their symmetry. Like the others, they were found using Stella 4d, which you can try or buy at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

The top image was formed by making this modification to the icosahedron, and the one below (which you can enlarge with a click) was created by doing the same thing to an icosidodecahedron.
