Eight Mandalas in Orbit

The mandalas on the eight hexagonal faces of this truncated octahedron were first seen in the blog-post immediately before this one. The six square faces have been hidden, creating holes in their places.

I used Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint to make this pattern, based on a ring of twenty-two hendecagons. The work of projecting this image onto a polyhedron, as well as making this rotating .gif image, was performed using another program, Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. If you’d like to try Stella for yourself, there’s a free trial download available at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
