I've loved Escher's work for many years.  One of my minor joys was buying an Escher pop up book.  You could always tell who already knew his work because of the look on their faces when they read the title.

Andrew Lipson and Daniel Shiu have done a number of LEGO sculptures of Escher prints.

For what it is worth and nothing to do with Escher

A bubbling energetic type often with boundless energy and a short attention span. Has a pattern of getting enthused about a project, starting it up and leaving the rest to others

My fav' artists are Giger, Turner, Dali and Escher

Didn't they use the stair idea in a Harry Potter film or did I just remember wrong?

Nice GIFs, thanks Mr Maets.

Your welcome.

I am a big Escher fan, so when I found the GIFs I was thrilled.

I don't know about Harry Potter, but I believe they used the stairs in Labyrinth. There's also a scene in Inception where things get odd.

Ah yes it was a moving staircase in Harry Potter,  Labyrinth was it, with Mr Bowie all over the show...... my memory is getting quite bad you know.
