Hydrangea Icosahedron

After I made a Hydrangea Cube, Hydrangea Icosahedron was the next logical step. Just as in the cube, the Hydrangea Tessellation by Shuzo Fujimoto is used as a modular unit. The method of modifying and connecting individual elements was first published by Meenakshi Mukerji but at a later time I came up with the same design independently.

 

The modified tessellation unit has properties very similar to the Sonobe unit so other, larger assemblies that can be made with Sonobe units can be made with Hydrangeas as well.

 

This is the head-on view, with pentagonal symmetry of the spiked icosahedron visible.
