Escher's logarithmic transform

In 1956, M.C. Escher completed his drawing "Print Gallery" in 1956. It shows a young man looking at a print in a gallery that is strongly deformed, but with an underlying sense of order to the deformation. It took until 2003 for mathematicians to discover the structure of the mathematical transformation which Escher came up with intuitively.
