In cooperation with Pitcher Puzzles, I am proud to present David Pitcher’s Mandala Cube.

From the designer:
I'm very pleased to introduce my latest puzzle, and the first to use it's geometry, the Mandala Cube.
The Mandala Cube has 48 axes of rotation, eight on each face, or four at each edge. Each of these axes can stop at six different places (in addition to the starting place) where turns can be made on adjacent axes. The axles on the puzzle are visible, and appear as the long skinny "bone shaped" pieces radiating out from the center of each face. Contour cutting was used to create the mandala pattern seen on each face of the puzzle, and to keep the corners (where six different axes intersect) from exploding into a large number of tiny pieces.
Mandala Cube is fairly large due to the requirements of the mechanism and the small size of some of the pieces relative to others. This one was quite a challenge to get to work, and I needed to come up with a few new (at least for me) tricks to get the mechanism to connect with all the pieces. I think the effort was well worth it though, since it might be one of the more beautiful puzzles I've made. It also turns very nicely, and is easy to play with (but I don't think it will be so easy to solve!).
Mandala Cube is 3 inches long per edge, and weighs in at a hefty 354 grams.
