This abstract wooden sculpture resembles a Penrose triangle - an impossible triangular structure, with one continuous surface. Like a Mobius strip, this sculpture folds onto itself: each side surface of the triangle inverts and becomes part of both front and back face of the carving. This results in a shape created of only three continuous surfaces.

  • It measures 7 inches in diameter and is 1 1/2 inch thick
  • The carving is made of walnut, natural variations of the wood grain make each piece distinct
  • It can be displayed laying flat or in a stand (included, made of black plastic)

Due to the symmetry of the sculpture, there are six ways to position the carving on the stand. You can alter the look simply by changing the wood orientation: with wood grain parallel, perpendicular or at a diagonal to the stand. 

Made to order, ready to ship in 7 business days.
