Escher Gravity Turtles by Hop41 Escher Gravity Turtles by Hop41
In his print "Gravity" M. C. Escher placed 12 monsters on the star faces of a small stellated dodecahedron. Escher had thought of using turtles instead of monsters. I am sad he didn't -- with all the polygons on a turtle, they are walking polyhedra! So in this polyhedral study I used polyhedral turtles.

The slight skew of the turtles remind me of snub dodecahedron. Maybe you can make one with snub dodecahedron instead of small stellated dodecahedron.

While some may call me weak minded for saying that the world sits upon a turtle,
and that that turtle sits upon another turtle, and it's turtles all the way down;
But don't tell me the unexamined life isn't worth living,
as I ride my infinite turtle fortress across the sky.
