This image is a view of the tight polyhedral immersion of the real projective plane with one handle that is presented in the article A Tight Polyhedral Real Projective Plane with One Handle. The existence of this object settles a question originally posed by N. Kuiper in 1960, and is significantly different from the solution in the smooth case.
