<html>
 
    <head>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="app.css">
    </head>
 
    <body>
 
        <div class="box">
             
            <!-- adding CSS variable --i -->
            <span style="--i:1;">
                <img src=
            </span>
 
            <!-- adding CSS variable --i -->
            <span style="--i:2;">
                <img src=

            </span>
 
            <!-- adding CSS variable --i -->
            <span style="--i:8;">
                <img src=

            <span style="--i:3;">
                <img src=
            </span>
         
        </div>   
    </body>
 
</html>

CSS: 
 

css




/* Applying Global CSS */
* {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    box-sizing: border-box;
}
 
/* Centering the content of whole body */
body {
    display: flex;
    justify-content: center;
    align-items: center;
    min-height: 100vh;
    background: #000;
}
 
/* Adding transform-style CSS
    property to the boxes */
.box {
    position: relative;
    width: 200px;
    height: 200px;
    transform-style: preserve-3d;
    animation: animate 20s linear infinite;
}
 
/* Adding keyframes for animation */
@keyframes animate {
    0% {
        transform: perspective(1000px) rotateY(0deg);
    }
    100% {
        transform: perspective(1000px) rotateY(360deg);
    }
}
 
/* Adding CSS to all the span
    tags for animation */
.box span {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    transform-origin: center;
    transform-style: preserve-3d;
    transform:
      rotateY(calc(var(--i) * 45deg)) translateZ(400px);
    -webkit-box-reflect:
below 0px linear-gradient(transparent, transparent, #0004);
}
 
/* Adding object-fit CSS property to all the images */
.box span img {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    height: 250px;
    width: 300px;
    object-fit: cover;
}
