This version of Clebsch's famous diagonal surface model features colored lines and two additional planes. One intersects the surfaces in a line and a hyperbola, the another one in three lines.
Our modern version of Klein's historical cubic surface model with four singularities is the main figure in our photo from the series "math sculptures in context". It is the pure white version with its 9 straight lines.
