I have always been fascinated with the work of M.C. Escher. So, I decided to recreate his work Hand With Reflecting Sphere.

    great capture! but why is the chair leaning backwards?

  • Peter Tompkins

    Peter Tompkins said (24 Aug 2012):

    @William. Thanks. I leaned the chair backward because when I was looking at Escher's original piece it looked like the chair on the right was leaning on it's hind legs. I couldn't get the chair to look curved from the sphere. lol
