This is a stylized version of the small triambic icosahedron, dual of the
small ditrigonal icosidodecahedron and a stellation of the icosahedron with irregular hexagonal faces.
The idea is that only true edges of the polyhedron should connect. The
*false* edges that normally appear in a model where faces intersect but
don't share a true edge have been removed by cutting away part of each face,
allowing the faces to pass through each other without collision. I call this a
*topological* model, as it highlights the true
topology of the polyhedron. This lets you
better see the internal structure of the polyhedron.
