Abstract

This triangular braid with three links colored red, yellow, and blue was designed by Koos Verhoeff and realized as mathematical art in three types of wood. The paradox comes about as follows. If there is no red link, then the blue link is completely on top of the yellow link. If there is no yellow link, then the red is completely on top of the blue. Finally, if there is no blue link, then the yellow link is completely on top of the red. How can it be that yellow is above red, red is above blue, and blue is above yellow?
