For this category “math gifts” we carefully selected just a few of our math sculptures which are particularly well suited to be given to somebody.

## A smoothed Kummer surface

The photo shows a smoothed Kummer surface in steel (inflated with bronze). This post also features links to plastic versions of this shape. The Kummer surface is a classic from the 19th century; our model is a smoothed version of it.

## Dancing torus knot

This object looks like a piece of art. But in fact, it is "just" a mathematical curve, called 7/3 torus knot. Imagine a donut, and then tie a cord around it in some interesting way.

## The Clebsch diagonal surface with two planes

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.

## The Clebsch diagonal surface in the family room

Our modern version of Clebsch's historical - nowadays quite famous - diagonal surface model is the main figure in our photo from the series "math sculptures in context". It is the pure white version with the 27 straight lines.
