This cube was made by a friend of mine, it is painted with acrylic paint, it is kind of girly though, but is truly a work of art. the picture doesn't really do it justice

If you are going to ask $20 for that puzzle then I highly suggest taking a better picture.

Stan Isaacs has a nice collection of painted cubes. In the 1980s he would give them to friends and ask them to paint whatever they wished.

Here are a few from the IPP29 display.

IK :( the problem is, the cube is still at my friends house, and photography isn't really their forte. I'll just have to get over there, take a picture and start another auction, I will repost here when I do that.

I think you can edit the listing to add more photos no matter how far you are into the auction. There are some things you can't change after the auction has been going for more than a day, but you can always add more pictures and more information.

Good luck to you or your friend on the auction.

the picture is no better, but here's a decent video, that shows it a little better.
