I get it, and know exactly how that is done.

The faces are actually facing INWARD, not outward. The square flush facing material around each face is lit from behind, and the material must be translucent so it casts a shadow which can be seen from the front side.

hope that helps... very cool effect.

Edit:

after a closer observation, the whole panel must be made of a translucent plastic or material somehow, and the shadows are cast from a light source hidden behind the "frames" around each face.

How to replicate it yourself? that is an EXCELENT question... you would have to create a mold somehow, but use a material which passes light like this does. I could imagine a green or yellow light, MAYBE even blue, but it would have to be pretty bright regardless.
