This interactive mathlet is an adaptation of the drawing that Leonardo da Vinci made of the augmented rhombicuboctahedron Vigintisex basium elevatus for Luca Pacioli's book 'De Divina Proportione'. Interacting with the application you can rotate the polyhedron and play with the "hole" in each face:. Dutch mathematician and sculptor Rinus Roelofs pointed out an error in da Vinci's drawing. Leonardo da Vinci was a genius, his drawings for Pacioli's book are wonderful and this is only an anecdote that alow us to study and enjoy this beautiful polyhedron. If we look at the two pyramids that point directly left and right we see something odd. They should be two cuadrangular pyramids but it is not clear if they are triangular or quadrangular. Perhaps it depends on the observer's point of view.
