A Flock of Rhombicosidodecahedra
It’s a littleknown fact that rhombicosidodecahedra prefer to fly in flocks of sixty, as seen here. I made this using Stella 4d, available at this website.

Op Art on a Dodecahedron
I used Geometer’s Sketchpad and MSPaint to make the designs on the faces, and then assembled the dodecahedron with Stella 4d, a program you may try here.

A Great Rhombicosidodecahedron Inspired By David Bowie, As Ziggy Stardust
I made this with Stella 4d, which you can try for yourself at this website.
Cluster of Six Rhombicosidodecahedra
To make this cluster, start with a cuboctahedron, then augment each of its square faces with rhombicosidodecahedra. Although the cuboctahedron has cuboctahedral symmetry, this cluster does not — rather, it has tetrahedral symmetry. I created this using Stella 4d, which … Continue reading

The Snub Dodecahedron’s Big Brother
The polyhedron above reminded me of the snub dodecahedron, which is shown below. Both rotating images were made using Stella 4d, which you can try for yourself — with a free trial download available — right here.
