Abstract: If the surface of a bounded three dimensional convex body has the property that each pair of its points can see some third point via the surface, then with a single exception the body must be a finite cone with a convex base. The exceptional shape is that of a solid hexahedron with six triangular plane faces formed as the union of two tetrahedra having a congruent face in common.
