Symmetry in the African craftwork
A Mozambican bag with beautiful examples of friezes.
The image appears in the book Il ritmo delle forme - The rhythm of the shapes.
From the point of view of topology, if it a surface of genus 2, that can be seen as a doughnut with two holes, or as a sphere with two handles attached.
