THE MAGIC OF M.C. ESCHER

"Magical" is an understated epithet about the type of artwork this man produced.

Heavenly, otherworldly, supernatural, so perfect that it could not have possibly been made by an actual human being... Now, that's more like it. M.C. Escher's work first awes, then mystifies, then brings about an incredible high, euphoria even, to finally put you in a state of such deep depression due to the simple fact that you would never, at least not in this lifetime, be able to produce something so incredibly powerful, so impeccably beautiful, and so fantastically divine. Makes you feel like that simple, flawed human being that you are.

[Well, at least that's the effect it has on me...]

But let's try to look on the bright side of life.

Turns out, M.C.'s work makes a fantastic setting for my recently purchased emerald earrings,  that I've been dying to show you, just couldn't find the right way to do so. So here they are, my gorgeous couple, being chased by Pedalternorotandomovens centroculatus articulosus, curl-up creatures that can be found solely on M.C.'s planet, and hanging out and about with his intellectual, book-loving reptiles.

My earrings enjoyed the company. Did you? :)

P.S. If you look into M.C.'s work, you will find quite the incredible transformation prints, in which the seemingly different morph into one another perfectly, which is quite the case with the melodies in a mix that I've been listening to repeatedly.

Give it a play:
