One Response to Tetrahedrally-Symmetric Creatures with Polyhedral Legs

  1. The first one is interesting: if remove yellow triangles and leave only red hexagons, it forms one polyhedron, which can be extended infinitely in all directions, forming a periodic regular polyhedron. Each its face is regular hexagon and at each vertex meet 6 hexagons. So its dual polyhedron is the same periodic infinite polyhedron!
