M.C. Escher

A hand drawing a hand which is drawing the hand doing the drawing ... staircases leading eternally upward .... fish tesselating into birds tesselating into fish ... I love the combination of whimsy and mathematics and impossibility-made-real which permeates the work of Dutchman M.C. Escher.

It'd be a nice touch if I could provide a link to a page on his website which'd provide a link back to this page of mine, but he's long dead, so I can't really ask him to help me. The best I can come up with is to suggest that you click on this link, which has been designed to send you off to an appropriate location in cyberspace....
