      Escher's Hand with Reflecting Sphere - Self-portraits were actually quite common in Escher's work. This example is the most prominent.

      Escher, Hand with Reflecting Sphere, 1935. also known as Self-Portrait in Spherical Mirror . Although Escher did not have mathematical training—his understanding of mathematics was largely visual and intuitive—Escher's work had a strong mathematical component. scher's artwork is especially well liked by mathematicians and scientists, who enjoy his use of polyhedra and geometric distortions.
