M.C. Escher's Waterfall Now in a 3D Sculpture and LEGO, Too

escher_waterfall.jpgIf you're a fan of artist M.C. Escher and his "Waterfall" woodcut, here's a scale model that somehow replicates that physically impossible structure. The $59.99 sculpture is six inches high, and will only be made in a limited edition of 500 units. At first we were hoping this was a working fountain, but the laws of physics wouldn't permit that. Take the jump for a look at the original Escher woodcut, and another Escher Waterfall made of LEGO.lego_waterfall-1.JPG This LEGO waterfall is from way back in 2003, but we thought it was quite clever nonetheless.

For reference, here's the artwork both these replicas are mocking: waterfall.JPG [Andrew Lipson, Escher waterfall sculpture: Think Geek]
