Did   You   Know?

 

The Dutch artist M.C. Escher is known for creating unusual views of everyday objects and settings. His illustrations show spaces and scenes that would be impossible in real life. They also feature unexpected changes of one object into another. In other works he created street scenes or views of rooms that include many optical illusions and repeated patterns. What's fascinating is that they looked different depending on how one looks at them.
