Arrange the nine cubes to create an M.C. Escher image
The M.C. Escher Mirror Puzzle consists of a tray and nine mirrored cubes.
Your goal is to recreate one of five famous Escher images by correctly arranging the nine cubes within the tray. It's darned tricky because each cube can reflect an image from its surrounding cubes as well as the interior walls of the tray.
Two mirrors per cube
Each 1.25" cube features two mirrored sides. The remaining four sides either feature sections from the five puzzles or are blank (solid white).
You must also use the walls of the tray
The interior walls of the M.C. Escher puzzle tray are adorned with squares from each of the five different puzzles. Use your mirrored cubes to reflect them into the final image.
Solve five famous M.C. Escher prints
M.C. Escher is well-known for his geometric-inspired prints that often feature impossible designs.
Five of his masterpieces are included in the M.C. Escher Mirror Puzzle: Reptiles (1943), Sky and Water 1 (1938), Print Gallery (1956), Hand with Reflecting Sphere (1935), and Drawing Hands (1948).
