    This design, called "Symmetry Drawing C" by Escher, is one of the few that I have repeated. The repeat was much smaller, only 5 x 9 inches. The six figures form the central piece of a mobile, carved on both sides, and surrounded by four individual figures on monofilament lines. This hung over the crib of my grandson under he grew too old for it. He is now a student at San Francisco State University.

      Both are great carvings, Phil. I like the large one as is - showing it's age!

            Nice work. I like the contrast you manage to get in your work. It looks great.

              Much of that contrast is gel stain. A woman in our local carving club told me about it. After carving and smoothing, the entire piece is sealed with a water-based sealer. When that is completely dry, brush on gel stain in incised lines and undercuts or textures. Wait a minute, then wipe off all the stain from smooth surfaces. Use paper towel or smooth finish cloth to avoid wiping down into lines or textures.

                That is a great carving. Reminds me of MC Escher, except your carving is relaxing/calming to look at.

                edit: I just realized there was a second page to this thread where you say it’s from Escher. Opps.

                  This is, in fact, a graphic design of M.C. Escher with a working title of "Symmetry Drawing C." It became the basis for a woodcut in 1952 called "Intersection of Two Planes" in which the birds and fish approach and cross from different planes.
