Another World

Another World

SKU: 348

Another World shows the same scene from three different vantage points. A surreal structure on the Moon of all places inhabited by the mythological Simurgh, a bird with a human head. The cubic structure hints at confinement whereas the surrounding universe spreads infinitely. Saturn sits in the lower right and a spiral galaxy, likely Andromeda (Edwin Hubble's 1923 mindblowing discovery that we are not the only galaxy in the Universe) swirls in the lowest window.

 

Who knows what else is out there? Escher could only imagine. 

 

The gridded architecture was used in three works in a short time periord: Another World, Doric Columns, and The Well.

 

This work is hand-printed by Escher and signed and annotated.
