Möbius Nautilus is the title of this 3D printed model by Joaquin Baldwin. It is a compound Möbius strip created out of 36 interlocking Möbius strips, and is made out of sintered vinyl plastic, which means that it won't break if dropped.
The artist's profile says:
All segments are thin Möbius strips, and they weave and interlock perfectly through the spaces left between them. Highly complex, and a headache to look at, yet it possesses an inherent mathematical simplicity and beauty.
This 3D model is available along with others by the same artist in the mathematical art section of Shapeways 3D Printing, which you can find at http://www.shapeways.com/art/mathematical-art. The site features thousands of works of 3D mathematical art, including many by well-known Google+ artists like (henryseg) and (roice3).
A Möbius strip is a famous surface with only one side and only one boundary component. Wikipedia has more details here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Möbius_strip
