Two Rhombic Polyhedra with Tessellated Faces

These polyhedra are the rhombic dodecahedron (above), and the rhombic triacontahedron (below).

I made both of these using Stella 4d, which you can try for free at The tessellation on the faces of these polyhedra first appeared right here on this blog, in the post just before this one.

Five Variants of the Compound of Two Tetrahedra

This is the compound of two tetrahedra, also known as Johannes Kepler’s Stella Octangula.

I found the five variations of this polyhedral compound shown below, located deep within the stellation-series of the great rhombicuboctahedron.

This mathematical illustration includes two shapes of rhombi (orange and green), isosceles trapezoids (blue), regular hexagons (yellow), regular enneagons (red), and a single regular octadecagon (violet).
