Spring with Trees and Animals

Spring is here. It cannot be stopped by the world’s problems. That is why we show you this print. A small wood engraving of 44 x 99 mm, but large in visual richness. This woodcut of a tree with birds and a squirrel is special, because it mirrors the whole image. Because of that reflection, and Escher’s play with shape and residual shape and the black and white contrast, the end result is both realistic and abstract. An ode to nature in these dark times.
