Like polyhedra, polychora are beautiful aesthetic structures - with one difference - polychora are four dimensional. Although they are beyond human comprehension to visualize, one can look at various projections or cross sections which are three dimensional and usually very intricate, these make outstanding pieces of art both in model form or in computer graphics. Polygons and polyhedra have been known since ancient times, but little study has gone into the next dimension - until recently.
