remove from album

A three-dimensional section of a regular stellated polytope.You can also see a video representing what happens when a regular stellated polytope - more precisely, the four-dimensional analogous of the great icosahedron - passes through our world. An analogous phenomenon would happen when an inhabitant of Flatland sees a stellated icosahedron passing through its plane world.
