Really Good Lego Model of Escher's "Relativity"

The idea strikes me as very strange: to take the impossible figures sketched by Escher and build Lego models of them.

Someone actually took up this seemingly "impossible" feat. Yesterday I found their pictures of "Relativity", of which I have a poster on the wall left of my PC. I've had some long looks at the poster. So the minute details of the Lego reconstruction interested me immediately. Due to the studs of (standard) Lego tiles pointing in only one direction they had to leave out a few railings, which help form the twisted triangle's composition lines. Each of the red Lego men are at the correct place and hold the correct action props. Sweetest are the Lego flowers and plants positioned at the picture's upper left, lower right and center. A very good job indeed.
