Selections from the Second Hundred Stellations of the Rhombicosidodecahedron
This survey began in the last post, with selections from the first hundred stellations of this Archimedean solid. In this survey of the second hundred stellations, the first one I find noteworthy enough for inclusion here is the 102nd stellation. … Continue reading

Selections from the First Hundred Stellations of the Rhombicosidodecahedron
Since shortly after I learned of their existence, I have found the rhombicosidodecahedron to be the most attractive of the Archimedean solids. That’s a personal aesthetic statement, of course, not a mathematical one. This solid has a long stellationseries. With … Continue reading

A Cluster of Twenty Great Icosahedra, Excavated from the Faces of a Central Icosahedron, Along with Its Dual
These twenty great icosahedra were excavated from the faces of a central icosahedron, which is concealed in the figure’s center. These excavations exceed the limits of the central icosahedron, resulting in each great icosahedron protruding in a direction opposite that … Continue reading
