how to make platonic solids

flower theme decoration on the surface of a do-it-yourself dodecahedron flat pentagons make a dodecahedron (a platonic solid)

by Aryka H.

Notice how Aryka's pentagons' edges carry patterns across from facet to facet. That's clever art. It's not tessellation, because there's implied overlapping, and only the flower petals repeat. But..again... this is some beautiful artwork on the surface of a dodecahedron.
