Description
M.C. Escher (1898-1972)
Escher was a 20th century Dutch graphic artist recognized for his unique interpretation of repeating patterns (tessellations), impossible architecture, and skills in woodcutting and lithography. Although lacking formal training in math or science, he was greatly appreciated by mathematicians, scientists, and crystallographers for his intuitive capacity for transforming geometric shape into a workable and adapting scheme. He became fascinated by the regular Division of the Plane when he visited Alhambra, a 14th-century Moorish castle in Granada, Spain in 1922. Later he would extend his passion from paper to carved beech wood spheres. 

In this Escher sphere, we see how he has adapted his interest in tessellations (repeating patterns) to sculpture. The fish commingle on all sides of the sphere, here reproduced after his original in carved beech wood. 

Material : Collectible quality, resin with hand-painted color details, matte and glossy finish. Statue replica is from the highly collectible Parastone Mouseion 3D Collection. 

Included : Full color card with image of original artwork. Description card about artist and artwork. Both cards are in four languages. 

Dimensions : 2.25 in H x 2.25 in W x 2.25 in D. Gift Box included. Weighs 11 ounces.
