Optical polarization (5000 Å) from a warped and clumpy dusty torus (in black) with Rwarp = 2 pc and θwarp = 30°, overplotted onto the azimuthally integrated polarization from the test model (in gray). The top panel shows the polarization degree P and the bottom panel the polarization position angle PPA. Points A and B mark the azimuthal bins before and after the large amplitude variation in PPA discussed in the text and developed in Fig. 4. The legend is the same as in Fig. 2.
