An Icosidodecahedral Cluster of Great Rhombicosidodecahedra

I made this, using Stella 4d, by augmenting the thirty square faces of a great rhombicosidodecahedron with additional great rhombicosidodecahedra. The result has one of these polyhedra located in each position which corresponds to a vertex of an icosidodecahedron.

Great Rhombicosidodecahedron with Interference Patterns

Programs used: Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint, to make the image seen in the previous post; and Stella 4d, to place that image of each face of this polyhedron, and then make this rotating .gif file.
