Permutohedron mirrors

The image below is from a viewpoint in a mirror-faced 3D permutohedron (truncated cuboctahedron). It should link to a larger (1920x1200) version. This image was produced with Sage (using the Tachyon raytracer and some new code for polytopes that I've been working on).

Have you tried mirrors for other ...hedra? cf. Devadoss' tilings by associahedra.
