An "ivy cut" trapezoidal icositetrahedron.

Ivy Kites is a 24 sided "ivy cut" puzzle, based on the trapezoidal icositetrahdron. It turns on eight axes of rotation, one at each 3-way vertex. These axes are relatively deep, so that almost half of the puzzle turns at once. Interestingly, due to the octahedral geometry, only 12 colors are needed to fully define each piece's location and orientation.
Ivy Kites could be looked at as an edgeless Master Skewb, or as a shape transformation of the Dreidel Skewb.
