Kaleidoscope, MC Escher Artwork

Kaleidoscope, MC Escher Artwork

M.C.Escher was always on the hunt for the extraordinary view on how this world turns. So this kaleidoscope with his design 'smaller, smaller' matches his ambition to view the world not necessarily bigger, bigger, but smarter than other people did. The world to him hid more treasures than the normal viewer would discover. Very similar was the discovery of the Kaleidoscope.

A bit of history

When David Brewster in the early 19th century invented the kaleidoscope, derived from Greek kalos = beautiful and skopos = the view, he would have never dreamt what was meant to be a technical device would become an extraordinary toy for adults and children.
What started with a simple tube and mirrors at the one end, glittering beads in between and a translucent disk at the other end, became a hot product. So quickly was the demand growing that he could not cope with producing enough of his kaleidoscopes. At the end, the object was produced in the UK as well as in the US. 

Unlike Brewster who did not patent his work, the MC Escher foundation carefully looks after his works, and what you find here is a licensed product, so you can trust it is of high quality.
