graph_description is a list of the form [ltype,name,n,xlist]

name is the name of the graph and n the number of nodes.

Returns the Tutte graph.
The Tutte graph is a cubic polyhedral, non-Hamiltonian graph. It has

It is a counterexample to Tait's conjecture that every 3-regular polyhedron

It can be realized geometrically from a tetrahedron by multiply truncating
three of its vertices [1]_.
