Rhombic Dodecahedron Gets A Wiggle On

Quoting from zindra on earthlink in 2006 "there is, however, a subtle twist to this picture, both literally and figuratively, in that another family of regular volumetric polyhedra exists, heretofore overlooked, which can be generated from the circle alone using only a compass: the cyclocentric polyhedra."

While the weathered tumbled travertine of the garden rhombi looks seed or even nut-like, even this first proof of the cyclocentric rhombic dodecahedron definately has a wiggle on

. The grocery store compass I have is plastic and looks clunky, but it has a screw to lock it tight. This eight inch single wiggle edged rhombus should yield a pillow approximately 14 inches in diameter.
