This 12 inch square relief carving is based on a woodcut (April 1954) of M. C. Escher titled “Tetrahedral Planetoid.” Four towns centered on the corners merge into an overhead view in the center. The next four photos are close-ups of each corner. It is a very complex design. So, I thought it might be more clear if I painted the rooftops red, and whitewashed the walls. This lead to painting the water features blue and the trees green – - a big mistake!

Wild! So, where do you live? On the lake on the east side of the world. Good thing that gravity pulls straight into the center of the tetrahedron. Hmm, maybe that doesn’t help so much.

All woodcutters are like little children. There is a car nearby and they look at the car. LOL …...
