Another Tribute to MC Escher (with LEGOS!)

As mentioned in a previous post, I am a big fan of MC Escher and tributes to his work. One of his most famous works is titled relativity and it shows an impossible scene of multiple surfaces being the ground where gravity pulls the occupants:

The other day I stumbled upon this amazing image that pays tribute to Escher with LEGOS! It was made by Andrew Lipson and Daniel Shiu. You can read more about the project at Andrews website.

The craziest thing is how they made it! The lego creation extends in lots of directions, needed a lot of support and involved some really creative lighting.
