The works of Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher (1898-1972) stands alone among artistic movements of the 20th century. In the geometric phenomena of symmetry, infinity, and paradoxes of perspective, Escher found rich material for his almost supernatural images. He used observations of the visible world, his own imagination or a combination of the two to create a masterful deception of the human eye. These ties were produced in cooperation with the M.C. Escher Foundation in Baarn, Holland. A portion of the sales of these ties supports the foundation.
This tie features the repeating pattern of a startfish, conch and cockle shells from Symmetry 42 (1941).
