    The Penrose triangle, a prominent feature of MC Escher’s works. (esp. the ones with the waterfall and the flights of stairs..)

    Mathematician is (duh) Roger Penrose.

    Impossible Triangle sculpture, Perth.
    Created by Oscar Reutersvard, but made famous by Roger Penrose. Hence the name Penrose Triangle.

    The hint being M.C.Escher, another crooked genius.


  13. That’s a Penrose Triangle, and the 2nd pic is Roger Penrose. Hint is MC Escher.

    Penrose triangle or Penrose tribar, an impossible object, devised and popularized by the mathematician Roger Penrose. The sculpture is an optical illusion of this in Perth, Australia.


  15. Roger Penrose. Penrose Geometric patterns and the sole of sports shoes (Nike) (or something like that?)

    the mathematician is roger penrose, who popularised it.

    It is the Penrose Triangle (ala Roger Penrose) sculpture in Perth Australia.
    Created by Brian McKay and Ahmad Abas.

    The mathematician is Roger Penrose, and the sculpture represents the Penrose triangle (“impossibility in its purest form”) when viewed from a different direction.
