M.C. Escher's "Relativity" in Fantastic 3D

Dutch artist M.C. Escher is best known for his "often mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. These feature impossible constructions, explorations of infinity, architecture, and tessellations" to quote Wikipedia. In other words, the dude was a freaking genius. Check out these fabulous 3D color renditions of "Relativity" which happens to be one of Escher's most famous pieces of art.
