Drawing of one hand drawing another which is drawing the first hand.
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 of one of his more famous drawings. The hands trick the mind by coming out of the paper to draw themselves. They create a circle and it is impossible to find the beginning and the end. M.C. Escher loved to play with this kind of imagery.
