Mathematical shapes can be created by making ‘Limping Seagulls’ - these are also called ‘Sonobe modules’.

6 pieces will make a cube. A cube is also known as a hexahedron.

Here are two of the pieces fitted together.

12 pieces will make a stellated octahedron. Stellated means that it has points.

30 pieces will make a stellated icosahedron. This has 20 points.

You can also make the following shapes:

 

36 pieces - Stellated stellated hexahedron.

48 pieces - Semi stellated stellated cubocathedron.

90 pieces - Stellated stellated dodecahedron.

 

Shapes up to 48 pieces can be assembled without glue.

 

Larger shapes may require glue to hold them together.

 

It is possible to find a shape made up of 900 pieces on the internet.
