and amorphous shapes of carbon molecules.

Platonic solids and a soccerball.

buckyball art.
Kerry Stefancyk, Allison Cahill, and Jessica Smith make polyhedral
models out of stained glass.

and related symmetric polyhedra such as the truncated icosahedron.
- Truncated
icosahedral symmetry. Explains why you might want to use a machined
aluminum buckyball as a gravity-wave detector...
- 270-strut
tensegrity sphere. Jim Leftwich makes polyhedra out of dowels and
hairbands.
- Zometool truncated
icosahedron image from the A2Z science and learning store catalog.
This looks to me like a raytrace rather than a real model.
