Here is another famous Escher graphic design converted to relief carving. This impossible structure with a waterfall was a lithograph he did in 1961. If you trace the water flow down the twisting brick channel, it mysteriously ends up at the top of the waterfall. This 16” x 20” basswood carving was completed in 2008. (Wow, 10 years ago!)

That’s one of the pieces I mentioned before, beautiful and wonderful, thanks for another of Escher’s works!
You must have some of Escher’s DNA in you.
