The overall symmetry of the 'animal' is

**92 regular dodecahedra**glued face-to-face between themselves: 12 of those are in**blue**, 20 further in**red**and the remaining 60 in**orange**. Pay attention now: the centers of the**blue (12)**and**red (20)**dodecahedra are the**32 vertices**of a**rhombic triacontahedron**(a**Catalan solid**dual to the**Archimedean icosidodecahedron**), the side of the rhombic triacontahedron is 4 times the radius of the sphere inscribed in a regular dodecahedron, that is sqrt(10 + 22/sqrt(5)). In all, the**complex**you are seeing is itself a great polyhedron of face vector [V= 1240, F= 864, E= 2160; genus: g= 29] (one hole per face of the said**rhombic triacontahedron**, that is 30 in all).The overall symmetry of the 'animal' is

**Ih**, that is,**icosahedral complete w. horiz. reflection**, the same of the regular dodecahedron & icosahedron.1
