Did-Facetings

The did (dodecadodecahedron) is made of 12 pentagrams and 12 pentagons. The edges of the did can be connected by pentagrams (first number), pentagons (second number) and hexagons (third number). Thus 7 polyhedra are created, which are grouped in the following way: Four of them have 5-fold resp. 3-fold pyramidal symmetry, the remaining three figures are icosahedral. These are the great dodecahemicosahedron (gidhei), the small dodecahemicosahedron (sidhei) and the did.
