RE-LEGO-TIVITY

RELATIVITY
This has to be browsed, in detail, to be appreciated: a version of Dutch artist M.C. Escher's print "Relativity" made . . . of Legos ?


Yes, indeedy! In my college days I had a poster of Escher's print that I kept for years by the stairway in whatever townhouse I was squatting in. And here's the link to the Sci American article with a 'slide show' with similar works of 'artistic illusion' that led me to this.

Fun! I'm gonna go buy a mega-deluxe-size set of these things and take up a new hobby.

I can't wait to show my son this! When we went to DC last summer, he got to handle some original Escher drawings (with gloves) in the Smithsonian's National Gallery research library.

BLISS.
