Michael Linton's Bayeux Tapestry: 1066 - A Medieval Mosaic and Puzzles
|Crystal Magic Cube (6x6x6 cm)||$35.00 NZ|
This 8 x 8 x 8 magic cube consists of an array of numbers from 1 to 512, with no number repeated or missing. These numbers have been arranged so that every line, file, column and diagonal, including the four corner to corner diagonals, adds to 2052.
In addition, if you take the eight corners of any cube within the cube, you will get 2052.
What makes it even more magical, is that if you take any face and swap it parallel to itself (top to bottom, side to side, back to front, or vice versa), the cube remains magic. This can be repeated as many times as you wish.
This cube was created by Michael Linton in 1977 using only pen and paper.
To provide proof that Michael created this cube, he encoded his initials into the top-back-left corner of the cube. There you can see the numbers 13112, which if you take as 13 1 12, and then count through the alphabet that number of times you will arrive at 13=M, 1=A, 12=L. Michael Antony Linton.
