Escher challenges the assumptions we make when viewing a 2-D image that might represent a three dimensional object.  

At the top of the image, a seemingly three dimensional gridded sphere sits atop...what?  A flat paper version of the same sphere above it and that is balanced upon the same flat image of a sphere.  Bruno Ernst illustrated the concept in his book "The Magic Mirror of MC Escher."

This print was hand-printed by Escher.  It is signed and annotated.  It is in excellent condition.
