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, with handcolored rings, is in the lower right and a spiral galaxy, likely Andromeda, (Edwin Hubble's mindblowing discovery that we are not the only galaxy in the Universe). Who knows what else is out there, Escher can only imagine.
This work is hand-printed by Escher and signed and annotated.
