Plate XXXVI[1] from De divina proportione is the rhombicuboctahedron by Leonardo da Vinci.

Leonardo da Vinci devised several frame models of regular solids, which he drew for Luca Pacioli's book De divina proportione.

Below the woodcut is the text "Vigintisex basium planum vacuum" (twenty-six open faces).

To the right of the woodcut is some illegible text.

The shape is a regular rhombicuboctahedron.
