This is another relief carving based on a design of M. C. Escher – basswood, 22” x 20” – stained
Description: On the drawing table is a design where three colors of lizards fit together – a tessellation. The lizards along the edge have grown tired of being trapped in the design, and have crawled out, over a book, a drawing triangle, a dodecahedron, an ashtray – only to be pulled back into the design.

-- Phil Allin - There are mountain climbers and people who talk about climbing mountains. The climbers have "selfies" at the summit!

Phil,

Escher or not that is pretty cool. How much time in something like that?

Thanks for posting.
