After my latest CSS3 experiment without images (Internet Explorer Pure CSS Logo), a friend suggested to create an animated 3D Super Mario Icon based on the 3D Retro Mario GIF image by Cezkid.
Well, this is the result of two weeks of work – an animated 3D Super Mario Icon built completely in CSS3 without images.
A still from Safari 5 with perspective and grids. Hover over the live demo to see this.

Source: Git Repository
Best viewed with Safari 5 & Chrome 9.

The CSS is a mess at the moment, I’ll clean it up later.
Internet Explorer & the Internet Explorer Logo are registered Trademarks of Microsoft. Download Internet Explorer.
