Hand carved from fine grained sandstone which was quarried at Glossop in Derbyshire
The sculpture forms a continuous shape which endlessly engaging to study. There is no beginning and no end. The joy of the art of mathematics.
It is provided with a 25 x 900mm stainless steel rod, which should be firmly secured to keep the piece in the correct position. Help and advice can be provided to assist with this.
During the 19th century the mathematician August Möbius explored the fascinating changes that occur
when a flat plane is twisted and curved. As the two ends meet a continous shape is formed which has
only one surface, throwing into question our understanding of 3 dimensions.
This sculpture follows those principles but is also based on a construction by two Cambridge mathematicians Cundy & Rollet.
