Wikipedia: This combination of properties cannot be realized by any 3-dimensional object in ordinary Euclidean space.

It was first created by the Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd in 1934.

The mathematician Roger Penrose independently devised and popularized it in the 1950s, describing it as “impossibility in its purest form”.

Penrose is absolutely correct… But you can still get it instilled in metal and very much possible to wear!

It is featured prominently in the works of artist M. C. Escher, whose earlier depictions of impossible objects partly inspired it.

The answer is – YES I CAN, if I warp the ordinary Euclidean space, or the object itself – whichever sounds better for you!
So I did! And now you can wear it yourself – if you order one!
