Building a “Polyhedral Porcupine”

This is the icosahedron, followed by its first stellation. The first stellation of the icosahedron can be stellated again, and again, and so on. The “final stellation” of the icosahedron is the one right before the stellation-series “wraps around,” back … Continue reading

The Final Stellation of the Rhombic Triacontahedron, Together with Its Dual, a Faceting of the Icosidodecahedron

Sharp-eyed, regular readers of this blog will notice that this is the same polyhedron shown in the previous post, which was described as the “final stellation of the compound of five cubes,” due to the coloring scheme used in the … Continue reading

The Final Stellation of the Compound of Five Cubes

The version of the final stellation of the compound of five cubes shown above has its colors derived from the traditional five-color version of the original compound, itself. The one below, by contrast, has its colors selected by face-type, without … Continue reading

The Final Stellation of the Great Rhombicosidodecahedron, Together with Its Dual

In the last post, several selections from the stellation-series of the great rhombicosidodecahedron (which some people call the truncated icosidodecahedron) were shown. It’s a long stellation-series — hundreds, or perhaps thousands, or even millions, of stellations long (I didn’t take … Continue reading

The Final Stellation of the Icosahedron

This is what you get if you stellate an icosahedron seventeen times. The eighteenth stellation “loops” back around to the original figure, the icosahedron. For this reason, the figure above is often called “the final stellation of the icosahedron,” as … Continue reading
