Klein Bottle

Name of Model: Klein Bottle
Created by: Andrew Lipson
Found at: http://www.andrewlipson.com/kleinbottle.htm
This is a LEGO sculpture of a Klein bottle made by the legendary knot theorist Andrew Lipson. OK, fine, he's actually legendary for his Escher-related LEGO models (Previously featured here). Complete LDRAW format building instructions are available for those of you who want to try this one at home. There are more pictures on this model's page as well. Take a close look at this one - I promise, it really is fascinating once you realize just what a Klein bottle is.
This is Wednesday's model of the day.
