In this paper we will try to examine how in the history of polyhedra (and in particular star polyhedra), a long period of “discovery” of individual types due to the observation of natural objects or due to artistic imagination preceded (and was connected with) the mathematical solution fixing the “right” definitions. Such long period of discovery—we will argue—influenced further investigations on nature and art.
