The permutahedron is the Cayley graph of the symmetric group S_{5} generated by the nearest-neighbour swaps
(12),
(23),
(34) and
(45).
The permutation p is represented as the point p^{-1} in R^{5}. All permutations lie on a 3-sphere, and this is projected onto R^{3}.

Explanation for bell-ringers:
Each vertex (corner) represents a doubles row. The coloured lines connect rows related by single changes:
345,
145,
125 and
123.
Here are some methods.
