You may as well admit that although you appreciate the beauty of the small snub icosicosidodecahedron, you aren't as clear as you might be on the theory behind it. This site can help; here you can view over 850 polyhedra (three dimensional objects bounded by polygons) in VRML format (there are several VRML plug-ins available for the major browsers, and instructions are provided on the site). Models can be manipulated by the viewer in a variety of ways, depending on the software used. And because this site intends to educate visitors about the theory of polyhedra, there are exercises to accompany the models. For those interested in a more hands-on approach, there are instructions for making paper models of selected polyhedra.
