The set is made up of three variants of a 100x100x100mm Carrara marble block.

Some blocks have grooves or holes punched into them like doors or windows and others have an edge that is completely rounded.

    Here is a product that could easily be overlooked but it's beauty and functionality deserve comment. As well as being a cool executive toy I could see it being a useful pen holder or paper weight. I'll put it on my Christmas list.

      Well, I'd just use it to build giant wangs, and get away with it by saying they are Hindi Lingams :P
