This Demonstration dissects a large cube into a rhombic dodecahedron of the second kind (RD2, or Bilinski dodecahedron) and a small cube. The sides of the small cube are equal to one half of the smaller diagonal of a golden rhombus. A side of the large cube is equal to the arithmetical mean of the diagonals of the rhombus.
