Solar Eclipses and Mandalas On a Great Rhombcuboctahedron

Credit where credit is due:

I found the eclipse picture with a Google-search.

The mandalas are the one in the previous post here (“Seventeen Circles”). I made it using Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint.

I used software called Stella 4d to assemble this onto the chosen polyhedron, and make the animated .gif file you see here. This software is available at http://www.software3d.com/stella.php, with a free trial download available.
