Möbius strip- silver and bronze pendant
Pendants made of silver and of bronze by silversmith Laila Prigorowsky.
This figure, known as a Möbius strip, is named after the mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius. Although we experience it as having two sides, this twisted loop has only one side.
The mythology of the Yoruba culture plays an important role in the writings of Nigerian Laureate Wole Soyinka. In Yoruban mythology, Ogun is the god of both creativity and war. To Soyinka the Möbius strip is a symbol of aesthetic and scientific truths and contradicitons:
"In this sense, it is the symbol if Ogun in particular, and an evolution from the self-devouring snake which he sometimes hangs around his neck and which symbolizes the doom of repetition."
