Here is what I believe is the last masterpiece of Avigrail. May God rest his tiny soul.

    $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil According to his profile... it is implied that Avigrail has passed away irl. Not entirely sure though. Would need confirmation. $\endgroup$ – The Great Duck Nov 2 '16 at 3:01

Okay well this is what I have

There are several coloured pieces. There are four of each colour and they are positioned so from a certain viewpoint they fit together. The viewpoint seems important so here they are:


Here's the one for red

And for purple
enter image description here

And for blue (missing tile further back and hidden)
enter image description here

And for pink
enter image description here

However

The greens are different. The four pieces don't join up, but make four squares with the greys:

1:

2:

3:

4:

To me, red looks very suspicious. Especially how it has rotational symmetry order 4.

  • $\begingroup$ It's also suspicious to me that the entire thing is symmetric. (Or at least, it seems to be.) Maybe something will happen if we somehow color those grey tiles that match with the greens? $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Nov 1 '16 at 23:46
  • $\begingroup$ @Deusovi yeah I agree. This must have take a lot of work! $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Nov 2 '16 at 7:04
  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil I don't understand the "rotational symmetry of order 4" $\endgroup$ – jaydm26 Nov 2 '16 at 14:39

    $\begingroup$ @jaydm26 it means that if you rotated it 360 degrees then it would show the same shape 4 times $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Nov 2 '16 at 16:34

    $\begingroup$ man, these comments read like a very climactic movie trailer.. two people standing in front of a huge mobile-like construction "did you notice that there is an uncanny symmetry here?" "yeah all those small pieces are symmetrical, so what?" "no.. i am talking about ..." the camera starts to pan out until the two protagonists are merely ants in front of a huge planetary system.. "the ENTIRE structure!..." $\endgroup$ – Timme Nov 23 '16 at 13:31
