%N Great rhombicosidodecahedron with faces of centered polygons.

%C The sequence starts with a central dot and expands outward with (n-1) centered polygonal pyramids producing a great rhombicosidodecahedron. Each iteration requires the addition of n-2 edges and n-1 vertices to complete the centered polygon of each face.
