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.
