Mid point of image is both floor and ceiling. Stairs and arches lead to a second story, and a boy is looking at a girl.
M. C. Escher is famous for his tessellations, or patters that line up without overlapping. Often Escher's tessellations would morph forming interesting structures and worlds. This is an image his work with impossible buildings. The stairs in this drawing are all upside down and lead to nowhere. He really enjoyed messing with the perspective in his building drawings. It was his intention that the viewer not know where the buildings ended or began. M.C. Escher loved to play with this kind of imagery.
