One sample of a magic-myth-puzzle which is a RubiksMagic with an odd number of tiles. This one has 7 tiles.

This is the outcome of Pantazis Houlis' interest in Rubiks Magic and its variants. He came up with the idea of "magic myths" which basically are puzzles like Rubiks-Magic-type with one main difference: The puzzle consists of a single loop of an odd number of tiles.
In his first announcement Pantazis mentioned three variants of magic myths:
5-tile: The Magic Thrones of the Gods
7-tile: The Magic Wrath of the Cyclops
9-tile: The Magic Secret of Atlantis
However for this 7-tile-variant he settled to use his own name as part of the puzzle's name.
The puzzle has two solutions of identical shape but with different colors.
The creator also presented an earlier variant "Pantazis Magic Box" which uses transparent tiles. See the 8th image.
