Are cylindrical, triangular, and square the shapes of different forms of the same object, in different locations? or does one single object change shape depending on where it is?

Are "here" and "there" different countries? states? cities?

Is "triangular" a triangular prism? or an essentially flat, triangular object?

Is it an object that has a different shape depending on where on the object you look? Or what angle it's viewed from? Or different conditions? Such as a substance that crystallizes in different ways depending on pressure and temperature?
Or are different places = different geographical locations?

Are the shapes ON the object (painted or otherwise some sort of image), or does the object itself take on these shapes?

Is this akin to the "six blind men find an elephant" story?

********************spoiler*****************
a roll of toilet paper is cylindrical from the
side, made of many square pieces of paper
and sometimes when you go to a hotel they fold the end into a triangle
