Transcript of M C Escher

M. C. Escher
June 17, 1898 - March 27th 1972
M. C. Escher was a Dutch graphic artist.
He is primarily known for his math inspired
prints that are extremely detailed and feature
impossible constructions, explorations
of infinity, architecture and tesselations.
That means he lived in Holland,
also called the Netherlands
These are some impossible constructions - take a look at where these stairs will take you...
Explorations in infinity
something that is infinite never ends
it goes on and on forever.
and ever and ever and ever and ever... you get the picture!
Look it's a hand drawing a hand that's drawing a hand!

also called the Netherlands.
