Make your brain ache now…..


I am a big fan of Escher, and thought that you might like this picture based on his work…..

…when I look at it for awhile, my brain aches.  What do you think?

    I like Escher.

    Brain does not ake.

  2. Nice, but no brain ache because the way I see it the light on the floor can only come from the top image, given the shape of the window so there’s no confusion as to which is ‘real’.

    Topsy-turvey, simple and effective, I like it it’s clever.

    It is confounding and unexpected. Your mind (or mine, at least) tries to view the top image as a mirror reflection of the bottom part, but after a couple seconds one realizes what it really is that you are looking at, and the stress evaporates…

  5. Unkl Critic says:

    I’d like the person on the bottom to be looking up maybe? And little brighter exposure so we could see some details couldn’t hurt either.

    My dream retirement is to hardly ever need to deal using the cold of winter or heat of summer. An A-Frame in Vermont and also a cottage by the sea near Savannah.
