Same as above only much bigger (approx. 3.5 feet in diameter)

 

These polyhedra are constructed from crown like structures or the decomposition of toric rings. Each one is, again, based on one of the Platonic or Archimedean polyhedra. They are inspired by Crown Ethers found in Chemistry. They represent the polyhedral analogs of those and related Crown Ethers.

They are, if you will, constructed with regular polygons set on edge relative to the edges of the polyhedra they encapsulate.

Collectively they are known in Geometry as Crown Polyhedra while in Nanoscience they would be called Crown Nanopolyhedra.
