Truncated great dodecahedron from metal

Truncated great dodecahedron

The monument to the “Truncated large dodecahedron” polyhedron was discovered in Obninsk (Russia) opposite the DOSAAF building (14 Shatskogo St.).

As for the appearance, alas, the polyhedron looks abandoned. Sources, why he was here and who the author, also could not be found. One thing is for sure - it has been here since Soviet times.
