The 43rd Stellation of the Snub Dodecahedron, and Related Polyhedra, Part Two

Just like I did in the first part of this two-part post, I’m starting with the snub dodecahedron’s 43rd stellation. This time, though, this polyhedral exploration is going in another direction. In the image below, the yellow kites seen above … Continue reading

The 43rd Stellation of the Snub Dodecahedron, and Related Polyhedra, Part One

If you stellate the snub dodecahedron 43 times, this is the result. The yellow faces are kites, not rhombi. Like the snub dodecahedron itself, this polyhedron is chiral. Here is the mirror-image of the polyhedron shown above. Any chiral polyhedron … Continue reading
