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.
