A Pentagonal Icositetrahedron, Decorated with Rippled Tessellations, Along with Its Compound with Its Own Mirror-Image

A Pentagonal Icositetrahedron, Decorated with Rippled Tessellations

The decorations on each face were created using the design, made using Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS_Paint, from this post: https://robertlovespi.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/rippling-tessellation-using-squares-regular-octagons-and-octaconcave-equilateral-hexadecagons/. I then used Stella 4d, available at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php, to project this flat image onto each face of this chiral polyhedron, the dual of the snub cube, and make this rotating image.

Next, I used Stella to add this figure to its own mirror-image, to make a compound — something that is always possible with chiral polyhedra. Here is the result.

Compound of enantiomorphic pair
