Stellated Dodecahedron II

This item is nearly 12 months overdue but I'm really pleased I actually got round to finishing it. It's another small stellated dodecahedron but it is much better known as Gravitation by M.C. Escher. 12 Turtles sit amongst the shape, the turtles are not fixed down instead relying on the framework to hold them in place. When rotated the turtles rattle around which makes a pleasing noise. Each turtle outline was cut from ply and painted before it was returned to the laser cutter to have the details added to it.
