Estrellas de Galicia y Lisboa
I made a Gallery 2, named “Estrellas de Galicia y Lisboa”. It became after Gallery 1, inspired by the exhibition of Imaginary at Santiago de Compostela, Spain. I was motivated by several images with mathematical content and stars which I met during my visit in Santiago de Compostela and Lisbon. They are completed by plots of stellated and truncated polyhedrons and stars made by Mathematica.
