Negatively curved space

A news story in my local paper (syndicated from the NY Times) included this marvellous image of a model of hyperbolic space, made by a mathematics teacher. I love it! Who ever thought you could combine two of my favourite hobbies -- cosmology and crochet!

Even better, one of the examples the article gave of negative curvature was a sea slug (beche-la-mer). I am feeling so hyperbolic right now...

And thanks to Chloe for the coincidental referral to Monster Crochet. Oh, the Thinks you can Think!
