Escher Knot

    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.

This is a model of the woodcut picture made by M.C. Escher in 1965 called 'Knots".
It has since then been a challenge for 3d modelers and mathematicians.
As far as I know it has not been modeled in 3d up till now. (It has! see comments).

The model's height is about 8 cm.

Dimensions

IN: 1.62 w x 1.62 d x 1.62 h

I figured out a sheetmetal pattern and I am making a mobius figure 8 knot now out of copper

Yes, it looks the same, it's a nice animation!. Did you model it just for the animation, or have you done something more with it?

I modeled a mobius trefoil knot in June 2009, it is very similiar to yours. Here is an animation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rChqj_2-7M4
