Rhombic Triacontahedron

1984, Private Collection

The view inside the mirror box displays a fascinating endless array of reflections of the viewer’s face at different distances and angles. This is a result of its many unique geometric properties,

The rhombic triacontahedron is a thirty-sided geometric solid. Each of its sides are identical equilateral diamond shapes (rhombs). The ratio of the diagonals of the faces are 1 :: Golden Proportion. It encloses both the Regular Dedecahedron and the Icosahedron, which are both Platonic Solids.
