Spanish Surrealist Painter Salvador Dalí Paper Toy - by Didactalia



Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marqués de Dalí de Pubol (11/05/1904 – January/01/1989), known as Salvador Dalí, was a prominent Spanish surrealist painter born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain. Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media. - read more at Salvador.Dali.at.Wikipedia

Compound Of Four Cubes Papercraft Project - by Bamboo Math & Kerguelen


 photo Compound of 4 cubes 2_zpsvynoeazv.jpgMy friend Kerguelen, from Netherlands, sent me his geometrical paper model of a Compound Cube, that beyond its mathematical properties and its usefulness in the classroom, it is also a beautiful decorative object. As I am not very good with directions, I will transcribe in the next lines the words that Mr. Kerguelen sent me and I believe that will be very useful for all who are interested in building this beautiful model. This paper model was created by Bamboo Math.

- "As you can see from the pieces it is very straightforward. You print the model sheet 4 times, each time in a different color, for each of the four cubes. Each sheet has only 8 pieces, corresponding to the 8 corners of that particular cube. (As is well known, cubes have 8 corners.) Two of those pieces have an identical piramidal shape. The 6 others are identical, but differ from the first two. If you look at the pictures, it is quite evident how to glue the pieces together, while maintaining the correct color scheme. In my own model I printed the pieces at such a size that each cube has a side of about 15,5 cm, giving the whole 'sphere' a diameter of about 22,5 cm. That's a bit smaller than a soccer ball. The last parts, when the model is 'closing', are a bit hard, as you can imagine. Therefore I advise to make the model not too small. I hang it from the ceiling from a very thin nylon wire that is attached inside the model. It looks quite attractive when it slowly turns and the intertwined cubes show themselves."

"Many thanks, Kerguelen, for your kindness in send me this very original model. Thank you for giving me the honor to post it here on the blog. Greetings from Brazil to Netherlands!" - Mauther

If you like math, I think it would be interesting to take a look at this website, Math 2033 (link right below), where this model was originally posted.

 photo Compound Of Four Cubes Papercraft Project - by Van Zeist - via papermau_zps6zlxfwz4.jpg

Meu amigo Kerguelen, da Holanda, enviou-me seu modelo de papel geométrico de um cubo Composto, que além de suas propriedades matemáticas e sua utilidade em sala de aula, é também um belo objeto decorativo. Como eu não sou muito bom com instruções, vou transcrever nas próximas linhas as palavras que o Sr. Kerguelen me enviou, e acredito que serão muito úteis para todos os que s e interessarem ​​em montar este belo modelo. Este modelo foi criado por Bamboo Math.

- "Como você pode pelas peças, é tudo muito simples. Você deve imprimir o template 4 vezes, cada vez em uma cor diferente, para cada um dos quatro cubos. Cada folha tem apenas 8 peças, correspondendo aos 8 cantos de um cubo. (Como todos sabemos, os cubos têm 8 cantos.) Duas dessas peças têm uma forma piramidal idêntica. Os outros 6 são idênticos, mas diferem dos dois primeiros. Se você olhar para as imagens, é bastante evidente como colar os pedaços juntos, mantendo o esquema de cores correto. Em meu próprio modelo, eu mprimi as peças em um tamanho tal que cada cubo tem um lado de cerca de 15,5 cms, dando a "esfera" um diâmetro total de cerca de 22,5 cms. Isso é um pouco menor do que uma bola de futebol. As últimas partes, quando o modelo é "fechado", são um pouco difíceis, como você pode imaginar, por isso eu aconselho a não tentar montar o modelo em um tamanho muito pequeno. Eu pendurei-o ao teto de um fio de nylon bem fino que foi fixado no interior do modelo. Ele chama muita atenção quando gira lentamente e os cubos dão a ilusão de se entrelaçarem."

"Muito obrigado, Kerguelen, pela gentileza em enviar-me este modelo super original. Muito obrigado por dar-me a honra em postá-lo aqui no blog. Saudações do Brasil à Holanda!" - Mauther

Se você gosta de matemática,eu creio que seria interessante dar uma olhada neste website, Math 2033 (link logo abaixo), aonde este modelo foi originalmente postado.
