The exhibit presents nearly all his prints, including Belvedere, Drawing Hands, Waterfall, and Ascending and Descending. Your eyes and brain will struggle to understand what they see as you’ll notice how birds are morphing into fish and water flow upstream.

M.C. Escher is a master in optical illusions, and you’ll see things that are, in fact, impossible. Visitors unravel some of Escher’s mysteries like the Impossible Penrose Triangle by constructing one himself.
