A sticker variation of the Alexander Star.

This can be either made as sticker variation of the Alexander Star or (as it was done by the inventor) as piece shuffle. Only 5 colors were used to sticker the variant. Four sets of three stickers use the same colors. These four sets are distributed like the corners of a tetrahedron. A beautiful example for the symmetry group of the tetrahedron being a subgroup of the icosahedral symmetries.
