This is "Hand with Reflecting Sphere" by M.C. Escher. It is a lithograph made in 1935. It is very much representative and naturalistic. One can clearly tell it is a hand with a sphere and image in that sphere. The detail put into the work is amazing. the sphere surly catches the attention of any view especially with the ground fading from a lighter gray to darker. The work is very interesting and almost like the oil painting from the text with the reflection of the room backwards. One can interpret this work to be one reflecting their own life, which is essentially in the palm of some higher spirit or being.
