Description / History: 

The artist's design is inspired by the work of Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher, hence the lizards and the the mosaic of nature. The lizards are so active that one breaks through the border of the design. There are cycles here: the swirling snails in the center, and the lizards circling with scorpions around the type. The Latin can be translated as 'Seek the Extraordinary." Exceptionally fine paper and printing, carefully selected by the artist, were used to create the print from the artist's original ink drawing.
