Soma Cube mounted on wood and glass stand



Soma Cube mounted on wood and glass stand

The puzzle is to repack the 7 pieces into a cube sitting on the glass and wood stand.

There is a sheet supplied with this puzzles which has another 21 shapes for you to try to make using these same seven pieces.

Danish poet and writer Piet Hein invented this puzzle in 1936 while attending a lecture on quantum physics. It is important to note that Mr. Hein did NOT begin with a cube, and cut it up to form the puzzle. He visualized the pieces first, then considered whether they would form a cube.

R. Guy at the University of Malaya in Singapore tabulated 240 different solutions for the puzzle.... but this is by no means the final count.

Soma is derived from the drug which transported it's users into a dreamlike trance in Aldous Huxley's Brave New World (1932) and has since been used to name a specific part of our brain.
How could we even contemplate giving this puzzle a new name?
