Hamiltonian Cycle

In a 54 vertex quartic graph.

While investigating whether a $54$ vertex quartic graph has a Hamiltonian cycle in the context of a recreational math problem, I came across this theorem of Tutte, which says that every $4$-connected planar graph has a Hamiltonian cycle. I was unsure if a $54$ vertex quartic graph could be planar, so I googled “graph 54 vertices 108 edges”, lo and behold, here is the beautiful matchstick graph and the Hamiltonian cycle that I found 😊.
