About this Product

This models a regular space-filling tessellation of hyperbolic space (one of four with finite cells). In this case, the cell is a dodecahdron. Five dodecahedra meet at every edge, and twenty meet at every vertex. Since this honeycomb is self-dual, I've included two in the same model, one that is cell-centered (black) and one that is vertex-centered (white). For more details, see Coxeter's paper, "Regular Honeycombs in Hyperbolic Space"
