Mean cube

These are the six pieces of Tom Jolly's 2004 Mean Cube that I recently acquired from Brian Menold. The small metallic circle embedded in the top of the bottom-left piece is a magnet whose complement resides on the bottom-right piece. It's a cheat meant to prevent the first piece out of the finished 4 by 4 by 4 cube from coming out too easily. There are no rotations in the assembly/disassembly but still a very challenging puzzle to own and appreciate.
