Theorem  :-  A lattice L is not a distributive lattice if and only if L has a sublattice which is isomorphic L1(kite structure) or L2(Pantagon structure).

Anyone, please provide an example. I am not able to understand the theorem.

Kite lattice and Pantagon lattice:

These two are not satisfying distributive property i.e. $x ∧ (y ∨ z) = (x ∧ y) ∨ (x ∧ z)$

So Graph contain these two also not distributive.
