Sections of a stellated polytope

add to album

This video is supposed to represent what happens when a regular stellated polytope - more precisely, the four-dimensional analogous of the great icosahedron - pass through our world. An analogous phenomenon would happen when an inhabitant of Flatland sees a stellated icosahedron passing through its plane world.
