The Black Widow Tessellation
The black polygons in this radial tessellation are regular decagons. The red figures are hourglassshaped equilateral hexagons, which remind me of the distinctive red markings found on many black widow spiders.

A Polyhedron Featuring 42 Regular Decagons
In addition to the 42 regular decagons, the faces of this polyhedron include twenty equilateral triangles, sixty yellow trapezoids, and sixty blue trapezoids. That’s 182 faces in all. The next picture shows what happens if all of the decagons have the … Continue reading
Decagonal Ring of Rhombic Triacontahedra
Ten rhombic triacontahedra fit perfectly into a decagonal ring. It’s not a “nearmiss” — the fit is exact. I made this with Stella 4d, software you can try for free, or purchase, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

There Are Many Faceted Versions of the Dodecahedron. This One Is the Dual of the Third Stellation of the Icosahedron.
The twelve purple faces of this faceted dodecahedron show up on Stella 4d‘s control interface as {10/4} star decagons, which would make them each have five pairs of two coincident vertices. I’m informally naming this special decagonthatlookslikeapentagram (or “star pentagon,” … Continue reading

A Radial Tessellation of Regular Decagons and Bowtie Hexagons
This tilingpattern could be continued indefinitely, while still maintaining its fivefold radial symmetry, giving it the overall appearance of a pentagon.

A Regular Decagon, Decomposed into Golden Triangles and Golden Gnomons
The golden triangles, in yellow, are acute isosceles triangles with a leg:base ratio which is the golden ratio. Golden gnomons, shown in orange, are related, for they are obtuse isosceles triangles where the golden ratio shows up as the base:leg … Continue reading
