Rind (1955) and Knots (1965)

Escher applied himself to representing volume and depth on a flat surface in many pieces, including those compared here.

In Rind, the artist has rendered the shape of a head with a ribbon, creating a three-dimensional volume with a two-dimensional object. Another particularity of this work is that it shows both the outside and the inside of the figure, as does one of the fascinating forms in Knots.
