Look at your house. It is a complex combination of rectangular cube. Look at the window. This is also rectangle, sometimes in combination with a half circle on the top. Now look at the inside of a room. The floor is rectangular, the top is rectangular. Your wall clock is a circle. If you look outside, the moon is a circle or more precisely a round sphere.
