Two icosahedral complexes derived from an icosahedron

Starting from a bead model of icosahedron, one can make a few beautiful rigid polyhedral complexes by adding more regular octahedra and tetrahedra surrounding the central icosahedron. Here are two examples:

Icosahedron + Icosidodecahedron

Icosahedron + Icosidodecahedron + Rhombic Hexecontahedron
