Deformed 3x3x3 centrosphere

Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A spherical 3x3x3 with the corners enlarged to form a frame that gives the appearance of a 2x2x2.

The puzzle has a strange property. The ball is not a sphere, but some sort of sheroid. A 90 degree turn of, for example, any slice, results in different height pieces being visible, and each slice produces a different height difference. It's almost as thought this was designed to be a bump type cube, except for the corners. This actually does not happen with the checkerboard pattern.
It was produced in ten different body colours (please refer to image 9) plus one version with six different colours: black, white, red, rose, green, blue, yellow, transpaent blue, transparent rose, transparent white.
Edge length: 57 mm
