Jules Verne “Steampunk” version

I made this one into a ‘Steampunk’ version that any Jules Verne fan would love. This was a matter of adding a nice tripod base with some brass fitting made for table lamp shade parts. Many of these geodesic polyhedron work in a 1950s ‘Atomic Age’ decor but this one I went back another 80 years to more of a ‘Victorian’ era type of a piece.

This is a commission piece, made from an icosidodecahedron made of 20 tetrahedrons (6 pieces eaxh x20 = 120 pieces just in the ball). Its about 10″ tall.
