Impossible Figure: Pillar

December sure was hectic! I have been planning to fix up my blog, but I haven’t actually gotten around to doing much. As these posts are the most common I figured I would implement a custom post type for consistency so I put off posting until I fixed that. But, it’s getting pushed into the future, I need to experiment more with WordPress first :)

An interesting detail with this figure is that it is point symmetrical from top to bottom.

Linework | Fillwork

From the bottom the cutout turns inside out going to the top.

    “Point symmetrical”?

  2. It is not reflection symmetrical, you cannot draw a line and get a mirror image. But, if you draw the lines through a point it will be :) Think of it like… split it in half, then rotate that half 180 degrees around a common center instead of mirroring it. I hope that makes sense!
