Bakos Compound

This polyhedron model of the beautiful Bakos compound consists of 4 cubes and the whole compound has the symmetry of one cube. It was published by T.Bakos in 1959. What I like about the model that all faces of the cubes are alike and the whole model consists of three different pieces only. A template for building this model can be found here.

For the people that wonder what the thing on the background is: it is a music-cd from Kelly Joe Phelps called: "Sky Like a Broken Clock". For more info about Kelly Joe Phoelps, see http://www.kellyjoephelps.com/

I found a way to put three Bakos compound into a compound of 12 cubes. A model of that polyhedron can be found here.
