A Latvian Möbius strip

When you go to Riga from the airport by car, you go through Kārļa Ulmaņa gatve and at the beginning of Lielirbes iela you can see these three Möbius strips. The Möbius strip was discovered independently by Johann Benedict Listingand  (1808–1882) and August Ferdinand Möbius (1790-1868) in 1858 and it’s a very curious non-orientable surface. It’s a good welcome sculpture to the city!
