Sculpture: Mathematical Figures

"A snub dodecahedron made from 120 paperclips. I designed this in response to George Hart's paperclip snub dodecahedron challenge, imposing a few additional constraints of my own: the paperclips should support themselves without glue, solder, etc., and the pieces should be recognizable as paperclips, with as little modification as possible. In this design, half of the paperclips have been bent at the middle, and the other half are intact and outline the central triangles."
