That is because you are using transparency. If your design was to the 
edge of the image. Then you would see it projected along the sides that 
are invisible.
What you are seeing (if you scaled the visible faces close together) can 
be used as a billboard. A 2D image that looks 3D from one particular 
angle. Before Poser it was a simple way to make human figures.
