Recently I undertook to build a Mobius sculpture out of hardwood. It was a challenging project, full of guess-work and minor adjustments.

But here it is, the finished product.

This mobius appears to have three surfaces and three edges. That’s because the mobius is constructed of wooden triangles glued together to form the complex curve.

But in fact, this sculpture has only ONE surface and ONE edge. A person can trace the surface or the edge from any point, and after circling the figure three times, will end up at the starting point.

It was after some observation that I discovered that my “three-sided” Mobius sculpture is a useful representation of the Holy Trinity found in Christian doctrine. God reveals that He is distinct in three personas, yet is One.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit unified and indistinguishable, yet separate and distinct.

That is really nice!
I can see there would be some difficulty in this project.
