Pencil Structure

Geometrical structure consisting of four intersecting hexagonal tubes, created from 148 pencils by members of workshops at the American Institute of Mathematics.

This pencil structure (left) is a variant of the 72 Pencils sculpture created by George W. Hart.

is there a way to figure out how many times the pencils intersect?
