This impossible frame is a combination of two 3D letters Π. I first thought of it as a pair of impossible forks glued together but later realized that, for its construction, two perfectly possible shapes will suffice. However, my little son found the 3D depiction of the pieces unnatural and lacking. Below is a result of a lame attempt to achieve the impossible.
