A Hybrid of the Tetrahedron and the Great Dodecahedron

I made this by stellating a dodecahedron repeatedly, but doing so with Stella 4d, the polyhedral-manipulation software I use (available here), set to use tetrahedral symmetry, rather than the higher-order icosahedral symmetry (which I often call “icosidodecahedral” symmetry) inherent to Platonic dodecahedra.

The same polyhedron appears below, but with the coloring-scheme, rotational direction, and rotational speed all set differently.
