#FOWC — Mirror Image

CD6D6261-3979-4AA1-921A-8159D948E531The image above, Hand with Reflecting Sphere, also known as Self-Portrait in Spherical Mirror, is a lithograph print by Dutch artist M.C. Escher. First printed in January 1935, the piece depicts the artist’s hand holding a reflective sphere. In the reflection, most of the room around Escher can be seen.

I have always been a huge fan of M.C. Escher’s work. I have several coffee table books of his drawings in my home as well as a handful of his prints hanging on my walls.

Here are just a few of my favorite Escher works. Look at them closely.
