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.
