The Small Ditrigonal Icosidodecahedron, Together with Its Fifth Stellation

Faceted Dodeca

I made the polyhedron above by performing a faceting of the dodecahedron, and only realized, after the fact, that I had stumbled upon one of the uniform polyhedra, a set of polyhedra I have not yet studied extensively. It is called the small ditrigonal icosidodecahedron, and its faces are twelve star pentagons and twenty equilateral triangles, with the triangles intersecting each other. Below is its fifth stellation, which appears to be a compound of a yellow dodecahedron and a red polyhedron which I do not (yet) recognize, although it does look quite familiar.

Both images were created using Stella 4d, software you can try right here.
