A 2x2x2 in shape of a truncated rhombohedron. It was inspired by a painting of Albrecht Dürer.

This shape transformation of a 2x2x2 was inspired by Albrecht Dürer's picture "Melancholia I" which features the shape in which the original puzzle was transformed. You should visit mathworld to learn more about the solid.
The puzzle still has some symmetry as any of the three side can be twisted and all three moves have the same effect on the puzzles shape.
