204: Drawing hands (Escher)

A pair of hands? Or at least, a right hand drawing a left hand, which in turn is drawing the hand that draws it.

This is another type of "impossible object," in which the levels are tangled.

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) was a Dutch artist, who produced many well-known images of mathematical fantasies, though he had no formal training in mathematics. Animals and birds metamorphose into geometrical shapes and back again - buildings follow geometrical rules, yet defy reality.
