UPDATE: this shape contains an error - see comments below, and a later post where I corrected it.

A realization of the Klein Quartic, made from 24 heptagons. The heptagons come in two different shapes: the 12 on the outside are different to the 12 on the inside.

Working on this because I'm trying to visualize how this corresponds to the {7,3} tiling of the hyperbolic plane.

Not sure you have enough twist on the "edges" of the tetrahedron? I've got this wrong before!

+Henry Segerman Thanks for mentioning this, I'll check!

+Henry Segerman I tried the 'devil's driving directions' from John Baez's page on my mesh and it didn't get me back to the starting edge in 8 moves, so I suspect I've made a mistake somewhere.
