The Rhombic Dodecahedron and Its First Stellation, Decorated in Three Colors

Rhombic Dodeca

The image on the faces of these polyhedra appeared, in black and white form, in the last post here. I used Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint to make it. It took a third program, Stella 4d, to project the image onto each face of a rhombic dodecahedron (as seen above), as well as the rhombic dodecahedron’s first stellation (below), and then generate these rotating .gif images. You can try Stella for free, as a trial download, at
