The Endless Towers

This image is an hommage to M.C. Escher
Inspired by Escher's image of monks ascending (or descending?) the stairs of a building, here the building was conceived a little differently: it was erecred from a central perspective. On looking downward, one can see the four towers twist, one into the other, creating the endless staircase. The four towers symbolize the four seasons. If one succeeds in climbing any of the four towers, he would find himself back were he started: at the beginning of the year.
