So. Amazing. At first, I didn't see the forced perspective. I would have rated it a 5 out of 5 anyhow, but come on, when it hit me... that was ridiculous! I practically fainted! So perfectly done.

Just donated my copy of this man's collected works to a friend to try and spread knowledge of Escher's utter Brilliance. And I think this to be an equally brilliant evocation of one of his finest designs. A well-earned 5/5. Cheers =)

It must have taken some serious time setting up the lighting and stuff (something I'm not very good at) to make both paths look like they were the same! I love the monster! ever think of making it into a t-shirt? I'd buy!

Escher is one of my all time favorite artists! I'm blown away that this can be done in 3D! Getting the camera angle just right must have been a real challenge. MOC of the Year?! I think so!

*gasps, faints, and spends several minutes unconscious on the floor before waking back up and being able to type this out* woooow... that's incredible! so, who's up for disappointment? the assorted monsters who seem to think that the pathway to the top story is real, or the kid at the top that's hoping against hope that it's fake?
