One of Many Possible Facetings of the Rhombicosidodecahedron

Faceted Rhombicosidodeca

I created this using Stella 4d:  Polyhedron Navigator, available at www.software3d.com/Stella.php. Faceting involves connecting different sets of vertices (relative to the original polyhedron) to form new edges and faces. The new edges and faces, both, typically intersect each other, although often not as many times as in this particular example of a faceted polyhedron.
