A Hexagonal Pyramid...or a Pyramidal Hexagon? Geometric fun from Claudia Garcia

Claudia sent this happily stamped (blue and white trimmed) envelope from Argentina!!!

And inside was a fun SURPRISE! Carefully i opened it up

Decorated with her stampings, I understood that I had to fold over tabs

and glue and assemble this odd shaped piece.

Did that!

And the result is a hexagonal pyramid...εξάγωνα πυραμίδα (Greek, of course!):

In geometry, a hexagonal pyramid is a pyramid with a hexagonal base upon

which are erected six triangular faces that meet at a point (the apex).

It is also called a heptahedron (having seven = επτά = epta surfaces).

The word polyhedron comes from the Greek πολύεδρον,

as poly- (stem of πολύς, "many") + -hedron (form of έδρα, "base" or "seat").

Thank you, Claudia!!! Fun to see and make! xxx
