Description
In this model, the twelve faces of a dodecahedron are replaced by twelve stars. Below and parallel to each of the stars is a regular pentagon. Only five rhombuses from the corners of a pentagon show beneath each star. The pentagons intersect one another.
This model is cut and folded from tan paper. A mark on the model reads: March (/) 09-1919. A typed tag reads: D24. A mark in pencil reads: 340 (/) D24.
