In his search for complex geometries secretly hidden in stone, it was quite obvious that after making a Square Knot with open Trefoils the question came, “Is it possible to connect 2 split tori”, a good friend who does mathematical programming for fun said no, but Karel insisted and indeed, it was possible. This time not the trefoil with his mirror image, but with his twin trefoil forming a so called Granny Knot. This can be easily done with a rope . First form a ring, open the ring, make two left or right sided knots and close the ring. You can do it,.. It is as simple as that. In stone it is somehow more complicated. For this moment it is not known yet if connecting Split tori can be done with the image and the mirror forming a Square Knot. It can be done with the rope, but how it looks like in stone? To be investigated.
