One wonders why the 1kg silver bar is obviously far larger in volume than the cube labelled the same weight?

Might be an optical illusion due to the perspective chosen.

Considering the whole point of the graphic is to provide visualisations of quantities of materials, they should work a bit harder to avoid that.

Seems like the Gold & Silver cubes were part of a separate graphic, and just sort of dropped in to add the gold/silver volume comparision without properly calibrating the scale...
