Thirty Golden Rectangles, Rotating About a Common Axis

The third image in the last post is a faceting of the icosidodecahedron. In that faceting, the faces used are equilateral triangles, star pentagons, and golden rectangles. To make these two new images, starting with that particular faceting of the icosidodecahedron, I rendered its triangles and star pentagons invisible, leaving only the thirty golden rectangles. It’s shown twice below, simply because I wanted to show it using two different coloring-schemes.



I would not be able to create images like this without the use of my favorite computer program, Stella 4d, written by a friend of mine who lives in Australia. You can try this program yourself, as a free trial download, at
