Caption

Borromean rings consist of three topological circles which are linked in such a way that removing any ring results in two unlinked rings. The illustration suggests this to be possible with ideal circular rings, which is impossible The name Borromean rings comes from their use in the coat of arms of the aristocratic Borromeo family in Northern Italy.
