Selections from the Stellation-Series of the Icosidodecahedron

The icosidodecahedron has a long and interesting stellation-series, and you can see the whole thing using Stella 4d, the program I used to make the rotating .gifs here. Rather than keep the scale the same in each frame, I set the program to make the polyhedron as large as possible, while still fitting in the image-box. This creates the illusion that the polyhedra below are “breathing.”

The polyhedron above is the 20th stellation of the icosidodecahedron — the one that appeared as the sole image in the last post here, but with completely different colors. The next one shown is the 31st stellation.
