Each of the two scutoids depicted below contain 2-D examples of my two favorite families of convex polytopes–the permutahedra (the hexagon) and associahedra (the pentagon, also the 2-D stellahedron, OEIS A248727), related to multiplicative (OEIS A133314) and compositional (OEIS A133437) inversion of functions (or formal generating series), respectively.
