The above is currently the only image for this item.
Cube featuring all 12 different pentominos.

Cube featuring all 12 different pentominos. The task to cover the surface of a cube with all 12 pentominos was described in an article by Martin Gardner. Since the 12 pieces have a total of 12x5=60 squares, each side must hold ten. Therefore it is neccessary to tilt the pieces.

The stickers for this cube were made by Philip K, using colors from a popular plastic version of the Pentomino Game. About 10 copies were made.
