Puddle is one of Escher's three water reflection prints, the others being Three Worlds and Rippled Surface. Puddle shows the reflection trees from the Italian print Calvi, yet Puddle was created from a scene in Holland after World War II.  The reflected beauty of Nature is juxtaposed against the intrusive tire tracks and footprints in barren mud. The puddle is a window into a more beautiful world than the one the observer trudges through.

 

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