    I have a print of M.C. Escher's "Metamorphosis II", an interesting artwork. You can view it and read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metamorphosis_II

    It has a chess position incorporated into it, which teaches several important (albeit common) chess concepts without words or moves.

     











    Any other fans of Escher? :)

    I'm a huge Escer fan...In fact my theme is this exact print inspired! (you can search it and use it if you want Tongue out)

     

    I really like all his work and my favorite has got to be either the eye with the skull in the pupil or his metamorphosis with the aligators (3-d not 2-d version)...ooo and of course the folded chess set as well, not as important a set-up though.

     

    Love it,
