##### Product Description
Mosaic Block is a twisty puzzle with a novel geometry, discovered by Anthony Villaveiran. Unlike classical twisty puzzles, here the axes do not go through the same point. As a consequence, some pieces can shift position after some turns. Several people have contributed to the design of this puzzle in a discussion on the Twisty Puzzles Forum. Read the full story below.

=== The story behind this puzzle ===

Anthony Villaveiran proposed an original idea that he called a Compy/Dino Cubiod at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. He proposed several versions of what were later called a G1x2x2 by varying the planar cut depth, and even using spherical cuts. However, he didn't have a mechanism for this puzzle and offered this invitation.. "if some one else would like to take a swing at this please feel free". At that point Carl Hoff jumped in.  He pointed out this puzzle could be made with Mosaic Cut styling. He also proposed a potential mechanism for this puzzle, proving that this puzzle does not need fudging. If we call Anthony's original design an order=2 puzzle, as two edges in all directions rotate with each corner, it was Carl that realized these same pieces could be used to make a "G1x1x2". Now having exploited all possible order=2 puzzles with this technique it was Landon Kryger who first made the jump order=3 puzzles with his sketch of the G1x2x3.  Carl then generalized his mech for this order=3 puzzle as shown here and here

Following the ideas by Anthony, Carl and Landon, Oskar van Deventer designed this Mosaic Block, a Mosaic Cube-styled G1x2x3.
