First, I hope this is not too big of a bump...
On the jumbling and chirality topic, for a chiral piece to go on the place of it's mirror twin the pieces had to be mechanically identical (either fudged or naturally so). But if they were identical, instead of mirrored copies, would they still be considered chiral pieces?
But I think a petal can rest on it's place either way, thorning or flat.
Secondly, this puzzle looks awesome, and has a very big factor of DO WANT NOW
Maybe it will be my first Shapeways purchase!

Also, it looks like it has another jumbling move (the overlap being one petal), for example turning the orange-blue edge 70,5 deg counterclockwise, and then turning the orange-yellow-green corner. Or the other way, turning a corner some degrees that another petal lines up and then turn an edge.

Though, looking at the cuts makes me less sure about that (I can't decide if they are symmetric or not). I just don't see how otherwise can the petals do that
Also, first post!
