Two Chiral Polyhedra

Two Chiral Polyhedra

To make this, I started with the dual of the great rhombicosidodecahedron, a polyhedron known as the dysdyakis triacontahedron. I then augmented half of its faces with tall prisms (thereby creating the chirality in this polyhedron), and took the convex hull of the result. The sixty red triangles are the tops of the augmentation-prisms.

A stellation of the above polyhedron, and a color-change, produced this result, also chiral. It may be enlarged with a click.

These polyhedra were created using Stella 4d, a program which you may buy — or try for free, as a trial download — at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
