Hello everyone, now i have decided to publish the most difficult handwork i ever created, it is a Tetrakis Hexahedron "icositetrahedron" made by an original 3x3x3 rubik's cube.
The icositetrahedrons is a family of solids which have the characteristic of having twenty-four sides;
P.S. Thanks to KaiXevandStanley who suggested me the correct name of the solid in question, and that pushed me to improve an aspect of my work.

Well, i made this puzzle three months ago, as I said, it is a twenty-four sided puzzle modification of an original rubik's cube (non-extended), divided in 12 colours;
I have created using a rubik's cube, Milliput black, black plastic sheets, Oracal vinyl sheets, Solid Edge, patience and 27 hours of hard work, without counting the hours desing.
The particularity of this object is that: it is the first in the world.
(P.S. it was sold);

Well, here the photos, and the video:

thank you all for your kind attention

Rafael.
