By Dutch designer Gijs Korthals Altes, here are four Kepler-Poinsot Polyhedra Paper Models. In geometry, a Kepler–Poinsot polyhedron is any of four regular star polyhedra. They may be obtained by stellating the regular convex dodecahedron and icosahedron, and differ from these in having regular pentagrammic faces or vertex figures.

Do designer holandês Gijs Korthals Altes, aqui estão quatro modelos de papel de Poliedros de Kepler-Poinsot. Os poliedros de Kepler-Poinsot são poliedros regulares não convexos. Existem apenas quatro destes sólidos: pequeno dodecaedro estrelado, grande dodecaedro estrelado, grande icosaedro e grande dodecaedro. Para considerá-los como poliedros regulares é preciso admitir que nesta categoria as faces podem ser polígonos regulares não convexos e que estas faces podem se intersectar.
