This scene is a composite of sketches made by Escher while living in Italy in the 1930’s. The 16” x 27” basswood relief was carved in 2016. The entire carving was sealed with water-based polyacrylic before wiping gel stain into lines, creases and textures for emphasis.

I’m a big Escher fan as well (I have one of his prints on my office wall).

You did a great job on the carving!

I must have missed that first time around!
You know by now that I really like your carvings, this is no exception.
