Happy Birthday, Maurits Cornelis Escher

“So let us then try to climb the mountain, not by stepping on what is below us, but to pull us up at what is above us, for my part at the stars; amen.”  M.C. Escher (June 17, 1898 – March 27, 1972)  – Dutch Graphic Artist, known for his mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs and mezzotints.
