I guess you can all see, that the dice consists of 8 smaller cubes. The task in school was to paint on all 9 sides a picture (yes, 9 sides, you can fold it a bit, so hidden inside the dice are 3 additional "sides") and we had to pick 1 classic artist and 1 modern artist and then "translate" pictures of the classic artist into the style of the modern artist...
As you can see, I picked Leonardo daVinci and Keith Haring (because I suck at drawing poeple and animals, but in Haring's style, it isn't that bad as normal^^)
OK, as I said, it will take some time until I can give you the instructions for making it, but I can already give you the list of materials...
8 wooden cubes (side length of my cubes is 3cm/1.81in
colors (we used "water and resin based matt colors" (in german: Bastelfarbe...) but I can't choose you your colors ;) )
clear adhesive tape (tape's width should be either 1/2of the little cube's side or the same => 1.5cm or 3cm or as close as you can get some...)
for those, who are either interested in the whole dice from me or want to see if there are really 9 sides, I'll show the other 8 sides (though I think that exept the 2nd side it isn't a good piece of art :/ )
I think everyone knows that drawing by daVinci, his man in cricle and square, inspired by Vitruv
That's supposed to be a "Lady with ermine" (don't say I didn't warn you! I just can't draw living beings :( )
daVinci's "Madonna with mandrel" (don't ask me why it got that name, I couldn't find a mandrel in the original oO)
daVinci's famous "the Last Supper" (I guess you can see that the inner sides aren't squares)
I told you I'm not good in this kind of drawing ;)
I hope you like the idea of that dice
more from me and my dice, when I begin making the new one / I find the instructions :)
