M
athematical objects have often been an object of artistic depiction. Of all the painters dealing with mathematical themes, probably the most famous was the Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher. In his drawings, he dealt inter alia with the perception of infinity, tessellations, rendering impossible objects and drawing topologically (math) interesting motifs. Among the latter, Knots are particularly famous.
Some of his drawings are based on the concept of the so-called Penrose Triangle; (see the top of this page). It represents an impossible object, created in the 1950s by Lionel Penrose and his son Roger Penrose.
Möbius Strip
Unlike an ordinary strip, which has two sides and two edges, the Möbius strip has only one side and only one edge. Such a surface was discovered by the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius. Möbius strips have entered our culture in many ways. It appears as an object of art, as in Escher's woodcut Möbius Strip II.

As Carlo H. Séquin wrote, ‘Knots fascinate many people, including sailors, cowboys, sculptors, and mathematicians.’ The sculpture below is based on the trefoil knot and is made from a single piece of wood. For mathematical background, see the article The trefoil knot: From a plane curve to a sculpture.
