Staricase Descending Optical Illusion
LEGO Descending staircase optical illusion based on M. C. Escher's Ascending and Descending.
About this creation
This is a never-ending staircase optical illusion. It is an impossible figure.

I uploaded this to LEGO Universe here.

I was inspired to make this by the LEGO model Ascending and Descending by Andrew Lipson and Daniel Shiu. Theirs is an exact replica of the lithograph Ascending and Descending made by M. C. Escher.

The main picture is the same as the this picture except I photoshopped the legs out.


The second picture is the same as the this picture except that I removed the ground and did a few other minor changes.


The third picture is the same as the this picture except that I changed the light level in photoshop.

The fourth picture is exactly how it came out of the camera except for a little bit of cropping.

I also made this as a prototype. It is not nearly as good because it does not have matching colors.

Wow, that's so cool. I love this illusion from Escher. Your LEGO version is perfect! I had to look very close to see the point where it's not connected. Without the studs it would have been even more difficult to notice the "trick"! Great job! :-))
