The polyhedron is one of the stellated forms of the icosidodecahedron.

An interesting feature of the model is that it is almost completely hollow (empty) inside. Details related to each other only pointwise.

The shape of the polyhedron served as the idea to create a lampshade for the indoor lamp.

Since the ancestor of the model is the stellate form of the icosidodecahedron.
The dodecahedron and icosahedron take part in the formation of the polyhedron.
