Happy Death Day, M C Escher

Maurits Cornelis Escher, usually referred to as M C Escher, was a Dutch graphic artist. He is best known for his often mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints, such as this one.

Relativity (1953)

M C Escher died on this day in 1972, aged 73. His work inspires all who see it to this day, and having spent the best part of the day studying the image above, I'm tempted to try writing something based on this very piece.

I'll let you know how I get on.
