Platonic solid flowers

While doodling, I noticed that platonic solids can be mapped onto the plane with many of the edges presented as circles and radial lines, with a few edges as curves and any outer point represented as a circle around the entire image. Superimposed duals look especially nice in this representation. These are rendered with my calligraphic lines library to highlight the vertices.
