This tessellation is made only of regular polygons: triangles, squares, and dodecagons.

# A Rhombic Dodecahedron Decorated with Golden Mandalas

To make this, I used *Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator* to take the image I blogged here, and then project it onto the faces of a rhombic dodecahedron. Next, I put that polyhedron into motion for the .gif shown below.
