Here's the 4-dimensional analogue of the dodecahedron, projected into 3-space for the occasion of this sculpture. It's named for its 120 dodecahedral faces, which appear skewed in this projection, but of course in 4-space they are all perfect regular dodecahedra.

One of the great things about 4-space is that it has six regular solids – polytopes – rather than the five Platonic solids of 3-space. Three of them are now available on this site (in 3D models); this is the second most complex.
