Geometry of the Pyramid of Khufu

Based on published data, each triangle of the Pyramid of Khufu is very close to being half of the golden rhombus. Therefore the pyramid fits into the top and bottom of a rhombic dodecahedron (one of the polar zonohedra) which has 8 golden rhombi and four rhombi with a diagonal ratio of 1.111.
