At the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM), the International Mathematical Union (IMU) organizes a donation/auction. One of the 20 beautiful and interesting pieces is our modern classic: the Barth Sextic world record surface as a laser-in-glass object.
You may purchase it from here directly by simply sending an e-mail. It is available in three different sizes: 5cm, 8cm, 10cm. The object presented at the ICM is the 8cm version. Their prices are 29.90, 89.90, 119.90 Euros, respectively, plus shipping. Within Germany, our shipping costs are 8.90 Euros; for other shipping costs, just contact us.
More information on our Laser-in-Glass objects is available on our laser-in-glass page. Some external links on the Barth Sextic:

- The mathematician/designer of the glass cube, Oliver Labs, wrote his Ph.D. thesis on the subject of surfaces with many singularities, see his website. It contains a whole section on the Barth Sextic.
We have many other math objects in our portfolio which are not presented on the website yet. Just contact us to learn more.
