This is awfully cool - these guys make 3D sculpture which looks like M.C.Escher's amazing 2D illustrations.  The sculpture is designed on a computer and then printed with a 3D printer.  As Neo would say: Whoa.

Escher -Belvedere

how it was done

And for extra credit, these guys made Belvedere out of Lego.  Double whoa.

In an even more amazing act of Lego legerdemain, they also made "Ascending and Descending":
