Eye 1946 by M.C. Escher, Mezzotint and drypoint, shows his own eye, which was greatly magnified by a convex shaving mirror. The center of his pupil reflects a skull. He is teasing us with the one who watches over all of us, the fate of each of us, death.
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.
