This conceptual design for a possible geometrical sculpture contains a cube, an octahedron, and some fragments. First form an octahedron after expanding the six faces of a cube. Next, interconnect the cube with eight sides of the octahedron. Finally, construct a central cubic frame.

This arrangement is useful for exploring the relationship of the octahedron and the cube, their possible decompositions, and the duality between them.
