    Artists have drawn inspiration from many mathematical structures, such as regular tilings, lattices, symmetry groups, regular polyhedra, knots, and links. A particularly well-known link goes by the name Borromean rings. It consists of three closed loops (“rings”) that cannot be taken apart without cutting, but after removing any one of the rings, the other two can be separated without cutting. In this paper, we present three families of sculptures involving miter joints, inspired by the Borromean rings.
