On the sign:
טטרקלינים מפריק
Tetraclinis articulata

תפוצה טבעית: צפון-מערב אפריקה, ספרד

קל לזהותו: לאצטרובליו הנקביים ארבעה קשקשים; מכאן גם שמו, בלטינית tetra פירושן ארבע. האצטרובלים שצבעם כחלחל הופכים לחומים ואז נפתחים ומשחררים זרעים מכונפים המופצים ברוח. עץ ממשפחת הברושיים.

[הפאה השנייה של הקוביה]
[The second face of the cube]
Tetraclinis articulata

Natural range: N.W. Africa, Spain

Easily recognized by its four-scaled female cones ("tetra" = four). Initially bluish, these cones turn brown, then open to release winged seeds to the wind. A member of the cypress family.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
הבט באיצטרובל פתוח: בבסיס, באמצע, תזהה נקודות לבנות קטנות. כמה הן? מה מקורן? (בבקשה אל תקטוף איצטרובלים מהעץ).

[a question]
Look inside a cone whose scales have opened. (Please don’t pick cones from the tree.) Can you see the small white spots at the base, in the middle? How many? What might these spots indicate?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
הנקודות הלבנות בתוך האיצטרובל של עץ זה מסמנות את מקום התחברות הזרעים, לפני שנפוצו עם הרוח.

[The Answer to the question]
Each white spot inside one of these cones marks the place where a seed was anchored, before it sailed on the wind.
