Here I have created a ‘Solomon’s Seal Knot’ – also known as a cinquefoil or pentafoil knot.
All details and hard modelling done with Knotserver and Wings3D, all lighting and surfacing rendered within Marmoset Toolbag 2, minor post work (signature!).

Thanks for dropping by.

In knot theory, the cinquefoil knot, also known as Solomon’s seal knot or the pentafoil knot, is one of two knots with crossing number five, the other being the three-twist knot. It is listed as the 51 knot in the Alexander-Briggs notation, and can also be described as the (5,2)-torus knot. The cinquefoil is the closed version of the double overhand knot. *
