“In the Eye of Escher” is a special experience; an optical illusion depicts something which is in fact impossible. M.C. Escher was a master in this field. In Escher’s Room the parent can become smaller than the child. The art of Escher instills a sense of bewilderment and wonder, and fascinates young and old alike with his magical world.
