The objects of my art are paper polyhedron models, most preferable uniform ones. The nets are constructed on a computer and printed on white paper of 80 g/m2. They are cut out with scissors and knives and assembled with glue. My initial motivation came from pictures of M. C. Escher.

Snub Dodecadodecahedron
380 mm Diameter
Xerographic paper

The Snub Dodecadodecahedron (Wenninger Number 111) is made of 12 pentagons (yellow), 12 pentagrams (red) and 60 triangles (each twelve in light green, dark green, light blue, dark blue and light grey). So seven colours were needed. The model was created with Stella 4D. It consists of 924 facelets.
