      I have the this on my wall, and it's one of my faves of Escher's. Looks like it must've taken a lot of planning =O...

      Thanks. I have the template posted to for those daring enough to try it. It's all made from a single piece of 8.5"x11" cardstock.

      i just made it, it was a lot of work figuring out how to fold it and how the locking mechanics work...
      But now i got it, THANKS for sharing this great design.

      Could I have permission to use this image in the creation of a 64*64 pixel button in a Civilization modmod I'm developing? It looks perfect to represent a maze created by the Goddess of Dimensions.

      I’m not sure how familiar you are with modding. It is essentially editing existing games to add functionality and features to change and hopefully improve the gaming experience of players. The modmod that I’m working on is being made freely available to others through the civfanatics site. The original development thread for them is at forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=419778.
