Drawing Hands shows a sheet of paper out
of which rise, from the wrists which remain flat on the page, two hands,
facing opposite and apparently in the act of drawing one another into
existence, a curiously satisfying paradox.
Maurits Cornelis Escher (1897-1972), was a Dutch
graphic artist known for his unique and fascinating works of art that
explore and exhibit a wide range of mathematical ideas and geometric
constructions, explorations of infinity, architecture, and tessellations, mosaics of repetitive designs in which positive and
negative images interconnect and sometimes blend into one another.
