What's a Torzle?
George Bell drew my attention to a puzzling twisted torus artifact, described in detail by George Hart's web page where he shares pictures of various specimens and some history.
I built a large set, pictured above, and two smaller sets of parts. With the smaller parts I arranged the peeling cuts in a serpentine fashion, so the material peeled away in a long snake-like path.
I added splashes of color to the smaller parts by changing material during the build process.
Here the two batches of miniature parts are linked together serially.
Here's a comparison between the sizes of the large and small model batches.
