This is a mirror image of J├╝rgen Brandt's puzzle. The stickers took forever to make.

Very impressive! Icosahedrons are always difficult to make and yours looks very accurate and well made.

Thank you everyone. It was my second attempt, I made it from a very used pyraminx.

To get the shape I went tetrahedron>octahedron>icosahedron

I learned about the Golden Ratio in the process. :wink:

Apparently I applied the ratio in the opposite direction that Jurgen did.

A young friend of the family, a budding engineer, showed me his ankle the other day. He has a tattoo there with the formula for the Golden Ratio.

That's a precious little gem of a puzzle. Really, really enviable!
