A Decorated Pentagonal Hexacontahedron, with Three of Its Stellations

penta-hexeconta

This is a pentagonal hexacontahedron, the dual of the snub dodecahedron. It’s decorated with mandalas of the the type I blogged here, two posts ago. The mandalas do interesting things when this polyhedron is stellated, as you can see below.

penta-hexeconta-stel-1

That was the first stellation, and here is the second:

penta-hexeconta-stel-2

The sixth stellation was the last one I found interesting enough to post.

All four polyhedral images above were created using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, software you may buy, or try for free, at this website.
