Fish with curvy lines

The 1963 original woodcut by M. C. Escher was just 4-1/4 inches square. In the center, alternating dark & light fish fit together like pieces of a puzzle, but they disappear into the curvy lines. The width of the lines hint at the color of the underlying fish. This shallow relief is 12 inches square, basswood.

I like this one, Phil – the fading into the lines is great!

It’s very artsy. I like it. Gotta say for me anyhow most of Escher is just too weird to contemplate. Because this is clearly fish, and they are supposed to be fish I find it pretty Un Escher like.

When I first looked at it I thought is was wood burned, then studied the other pictures and realized it was relief cut carving. Very impressed, and a great job. Mike

Like many artistic people Escher went through phases. The weird stuff came later.

You have mastered the Escher style again!
This one is different but still Escher through and through.
