Composition by Motoko Honda, at Jiwar Artist Residency, Barcelona, Spain

This composition was inspired by a colorful historic title floor in my studio at Jiwar Artist Residency in Barcelona, Spain, and the "near-miss Johnson Solid" which is a "strictly convex polyhedron whose faces are close to begin regular polygons but some of all which are not precisely regular" Wikipedia), discussed in a mathematic article, "The Impossible Mathematics of the Real World" by Evelyn Lamb.
