Stellated Dodecahedron

2019
Paolo Uccello, Johannes Kepler and M. C. Escher drew the small
stellated dodecahedron. You can fold one from its net of 60 isosceles
triangles - but it's better built by weaving together twelve
nonconvex interlocking pentagrammatical faces. No tape. No glue.

We're still trying assemble the great stellated dodecahdron from the same
ingredients.
