|Pattern type||Strict still life|
|Number of cells||9|
|Bounding box||6 × 3|
|Discovered by||Robert Wainwright|
|Year of discovery||1972|
Two copies of this still life can position themselves in such a way so that they share two-fold C2_4 rotational symmetry. In this orientation, they can be considered one strict still life and fit in a 6 × 6 bounding box, giving the resultant still life the highest density of all still lifes fitting inside such a bounding box.

It is the 63rd most common still life on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue, being less common than boat with long tail but more common than beehive at loaf. It is the 6th most common still life with 9 cells, being less common than cis-boat with tail but more common than tub with long tail.
All strict still lifes with a population of 21 or fewer cells, as well as all oscillators and spaceships with 16 or fewer cells, are known to be glider-constructible. A glider synthesis of this object can be found in the infobox to the right.
