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.

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!
