Girih Polyhedra Pattern

This pattern is from twenty heptakaidecahedrons decorated with girih tile strapwork, and aligned side-by-side. The heptakaidecahedron is a seventeen sided, geometric solid with two girih tile pentagonal faces, five girih tile elongated hexagon faces, and ten isosceles triangles. In this pattern, the three dimensional solids are in five rows of four each heptakaidecahedrons with each alternating row rotated by 180 degrees, and viewed in perspective.

These are the same heptakaidecahedrons at a different scale, and rotating.
