A Pyritohedral Coloring-Scheme for the Truncated Icosahedron

pyritohedral coloring of the truncated icosahedron

While the polyhedron above, informally known as the “soccer ball,” has icosidodecahedral symmetry, its coloring-scheme does not. Instead, I colored the faces in such a way that the coloring-scheme has pyritohedral symmetry — the symmetry of a standard volleyball.
