Linked Triangles by Heidi Burgiel

At the center of this picture are three triangles. The link they form is equivalent to the Boromean Rings featured in Not Knot. The smaller pictures in the upper left and right hand corners show two views of a set of four linked triangles. This picture was inspired by the sculptures of John Robinson and George Odom. The mathematical properties of these sculputures were brought to the artist's attention by H.S.M. Coxeter.
