3D structure from peas and toothpicks

Posted by Knonie

I saw some fresh peas in the kitchen this evening and picked up a few to my room. I thought about making some 3D model using these peas and toothpicks. It reminds me of the same activity I used to do during childhood but that was restricted to making cube and simple shapes only. After much effort, I finally came to something that I was looking for. Then took and processed some photos and here they are, shared below. This polyhedron uses pentagonal-base and square-base pyramids.
