Uniform polyhedra, c 1965.

© Science Museum / Science & Society Picture Library


A polyhedron is said to be uniform when all its faces are regular polygons and all its vertices are surrounded by similar polygons arranged in the same way. By symmetry, the vertices of uniform polyhedra lie on a sphere. This image shows some of the 54 uniform polyhedra whose faces are partially hidden inside the solid.
