I’m Kong. Pass me that banana?

So this is one of the largest creatures I’ve made, comes in at 19" tip to tip on the points. It’s a higher order stellation of a dodecahedron, I forget which one, maybe 6th? The overall model consists of 780 pieces (actually 787 now that I consider the hanging platform shown below), and took about 3 hours to assemble.

I decided I wanted to hang this one, so I devised a special platform in one of the points. An eyelet screws into that central hole and then a string can thread out the top of the point. The end result worked perfectly.

Up close, the symmetry and overall design leads to a nicely complex look.

Here it is, just hanging around.
