Bubinga Torus Links, Figure 1
Alex J. Feingold, Binghamton University--SUNYFollow
A 6" diameter carved torus link sculpture from Bubinga wood.
It can be thought of as having two distinct (2,1) knots on its surface, each of which goes around the outside of the torus two times and through the hole once before coming back to its beginning. That divides the surface into two unconnected valleys, each of which does the same as each of the knots, going around twice and through the hole once. If this were made of a flexible rod material, with cross section a square (with concave sides), it would be created by bending the rod into a circle with a 180 degree twist so that opposite sides of the square would meet when the circle closes.
