    Evangelista Toricelli.
    Gabriel’s horn, after archangel gabriel.

    The paradoxical construct is ‘The painter’s paradox’,
    where a finite amount of paint ( volume ) can be used to fill the infinite surface area that the horn has.

    Gabriel’s Horn – 1 being Gabriel blowing the horn and 2 being Torricelli – a figure of infinite surface area but finite volume.
