  1. For those who don’t know, this image was created like a mosaic. It’s actually divided up into a bunch of smaller tiles that a lot of different artists worked on separately (they could ofcourse see the borders of neighbouring tiles to make it seamless).

  2. I think it’s really clever, to interlace Escher’s inside-out, topsy-turvey world vision is tough enough, but to seamlessly blend a variety of pallettes, perspectives and themes in to a cohesive image of imagination run wild, that’s a challenge!

    I’m a fan of his work, and picking out familiar images embedded in the whole is a “Where’s Waldo” of the fine arts pile of fun!
