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.

A Concave Polyhedron Featuring Eight Regular Dodecagons

110 faces 8 dodec 6 rectangles 96 triangles

This 110-faced polyhedron has, in addition to the eight regular dodecagons, six rectangles, and 96 triangles. I made it using Stella 4d, a program you can try for free, as a demo version, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. I wish I could remember how I made it!

Fortunately, I have many friends who are more knowledgeable than I, when it comes to mathematics. Perhaps one of them will be able to solve this mystery.
