Metamorphose

P1030392-b "Metamorphose" designed by Escher and (hand)painted by others under his supervision in the GPO the hague, during 1968/1969. The length is 58 meters and it is 1,60 meter high. You cannot catch this in one photo. What you see is just a part of it. This work of Escher is totally unknown to almost 99% of the tourists. There is no guidebook (unknown to me) that mentions it. So pay a visit to the postoffice. Its just in the centre of the city, opposite the Church and the old Town Hall. Kerkplein 1.

Since januari 2008 this beautiful piece of art has moved to our International Airport Schiphol Amsterdam
