In the following, Loxodromes making +/- 30 Degree to any meridian are
stereographically projected onto plane tangential to South Pole as
equi-angular/Logarithmic spirals. Please add 4 or 6 Loxos around polar
axis to get a full pattern. (Avoided it, as it may clutter up the
graphic). I remember a beautiful picturization similar to this in
'Mathographics' by Dixon Robert. A.,
New York, Dover, 1991.
Hope you get stereographic projections of icosa & dodecahedrons to
show, as precursors to crystallography..
Cheers,
Narasimham
