Seafaring cinquefoil

Week two of the Knot geometry project, 800 (nautical) miles from Null island. Leaving the gulf of Guinea entering the open ocean. A school of Cinquefoil knots are jumping on and off the water around me!

In mathematics, this prime knot also named pentafoil or seal of Solomon, can’t be built from smaller knots and is only one of two knots with 5 crossings. Its dynamic and fluid shape creates a polished geometry and its surface glistens like water  on a dolphin’s skin.
