Jeepers creepers! What are those creatures?  This 3.5 inch nylon sculpture is an arrangement of 24 of them.

Here's what they each look like. I'm not sure which end is head and which end is tail.

However you look, there are two in the same plane, but facing opposite ways.
Yet the geometry is subtle unless you look from just the right direction.

The whole has octahedral symmetry.  Here is a view along a 4-fold axis.

And here is a view along a 3-fold axis.
