[jjecbmbx] Depicting a colored cube

A simple way of depicting 6 sides of a cube that has each face a different solid color: front face as square, 4 adjacent faces as trapezoids, and the back face as a colored border around.

Similarly for isometric: the border has 3 segments of different colors, corresponding to the 3 hidden faces.

Animate a rotating cube.

This is not useful if the faces have something more complicated than just solid color, e.g., Rubik's cube.

Generalizable to other polyhedra, though possibly tricky.  Dodecahedron could look surrounded by 2 rings of color.

Inspired by a Lego Rubik's cube in which the face tiles stick out enough that they can be seen from "behind".
