A virtual polyhedron
One of the five regular polyhedra, the cube, reconstructed, in two colours, in the kaleidoscope of the tetrahedron: so we can see that the symmetry goup of the tetrahedron is a subgroup of index 2 in the symmetry group of the cube.
You can see a different polyhedron in the same kaleidoscope or another polyhedron in a different kaleidoscope.
From the exhibition Symmetry, playing with mirrors.
