Magic cube 4x4x4 composed with 12 magic squares, including the one of Dürer:
Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), was a German painter, printmaker and theorist. He is the creator of an engraving called Melancolia that includes among others, the following magic square:
The magic constant is 34. It is the sum of each row, each colomn and each diagonal.
By extending my method of magic squares to the construction of magic cubes, we can use the magic square of Dürer as one of the faces of a magic cube. The assembly by horizontal layers of the four magic squares below is a magic cube (you may download the Excel file at the bottom of this page):
Still using the same method, one can build magic cubes containing the magic square of Antoni Gaudi.
