PICTORIAL



 This polyhedra is presented as a design for a unique structure with five-point star symmetry. Edges of the Dodecahedron are extended in space to the common points of convergence.
It can be a functional and aesthetic structure.
The ground perimeter- footprint is a 5-point star and every triangle face is part of a pentagonal pyramid star point.



The hub-strut structure shown as a large frame with 2 x 4 construction. Inner dodeca struts (brown) are 8 ft.
This could be a wood, steel tube or aluminum structure, open frame or covered with a variety of materials.
The bottom star-point pentagonal pyramid is not shown. If included, the structure would rest naturally on 3 star points, instead of the star face as shown here.



As a decorative ornament, for example on top of the Icosa - Dome:
