Calendarik - dodecahedron

dodecahedron
What do you think the dodecahedron and the calendar have in common?

This number is 12. That is exactly the number of months in a year and the sides (faces) of a dodecahedron. This is the most suitable polyhedron so that all 12 months of the year can be placed on its faces.

Therefore, on the eve of the upcoming New Year, we offer you to make not just a polyhedron, but a whole twelve-sided calendar.
