Dissection of a Rhombic 210-hedron into a Combination of Icosahedron and Truncated Dodecahedron

The rhombic 210-hedron that consists of 90 prolate golden rhombic rhombohedra and 70 obtuse golden rhombic rhombohedra is dissected and reassembled into a combination of the icosahedron and the truncated dodecahedron.

In [1] J. H. Conway, C. Radin and L. Sadun applied their theory of geodetic angles to the non-snub Archimedean polyhedra, proving that some combinations of Platonic and Archimedean solids can be decomposed to a cube. The truncated dodecahedron is an example.
