The texture of the object is clear crystal, the infinite plane is bronze with fuzzy reflection at 25%, only 2 back light spots one orange the other violet, no key light.
The 3D mesh (.obj) came from the freeware 3D-XplorMath.
If you take a sheet of paper you have 2 surfaces with boundary, if you twist it half of a turn and glue 2 of it sides you have a Mobius strip, an object with one surface with boundary, a Klein bottle is an object with one surface like the Mobius strip but without boundary...
There's some different ways to represent a Klein bottle, this one is some time also call Klein bagel.
This is purely an artistic vision with the object as support for shapes and colors, it's not the best way to represent a mathematical object if you want to study it, because you don't really see the structure of the object.

Nice object and textures I was interested in this application but I think it is for Mac I have downloaded a Java version but that only outputs the file to 3dxmj which my 3d converter doesn't recognize! May be I'm doing something wrong! Nice results would love to try!
