M.C. Gold 5
This is a 77 modified hexagonal pieces wall art I´ve planned for a very long time. The pattern is inspired by a motif I found in the Doris Schattschneider´s book M.C. ESCHER: Visions of Symmetry. According to the source, Escher copied the motif into his notebook in 1937 from a scientific paper by German crystallographer F. Haag from 1923. I´m not sure, if he ever actually used it, though.
I discovered Escher´s work in 2009 and then in 2013 the paper folding reliefs of Matthiew Shlian and I wanted to combine the two sources ever since. The piece is 65 x 65 x 3 cm (25½ x 25½ in).
