Description / History: 

To reflect my interest in the graphic art of M. C. Escher, Kuris has inscribed my name on an 'impossible triangle.' The picture on the wall is an homage to Escher's 'Angels and Devils.' The print viewer is both inside and outside the frame he holds. The Latin can be translated as 'Seek the Extraordinary.' I have designated it as an 'ex Collectione' print rather than the traditional 'ex Libris' since few will be placed in books but it is certainly from my collection! Each print is signed by the artist from an edition of approximately 100 examples, with Kuris' name and 'ISRAEL' stamped on the reverse.
