42 Rhombic Dodecahedra

This carving is based on the space-filling property of Rhombic Dodecahedra.  One in the center, 12 around that and then the layer of 42 that this carving is based on.  You can theoretically keep stacking on concentric layer upon layer of more and more equal sized rhombic dodecahedra, and your stackings will infinitely approach a cubeoctahedron, making the faces smoother and smoother.


very interesting and inspiring. looking forward to seeing the final flower of life piece…your cousin Joe says hi …. (from the Isha ashram)

Thank you! If you’re looking forward to seeing the “Work in Process” finished, it is. Entitled “Knotwork Sphere,” it’s there. Tell Joe I say hi, and thank you for the message.
