This is a 3D reproduction of M.C. Escher's print "Cube with magic ribbons". This print is significant for being Escher's first drawing featuring an impossible object [wikipedia]. It's quite amazing what Escher managed to do without having the opportunity to use 3D modeling software.

Technical Details

This image has been rendered using the POVRay raytracer. No post-processing has taken place on the image to make the illusion work; this is the 3D scene as it is rendered by the raytracer.

Excellent work , I agree with you, what matters is not how it was done, what matters is the final result and the effect produced.
Congratulations for this great work!

Thanks! I had to use various tricks to create this illusion. However, I won't reveal them here, as I think illusions are more fun if you do not know how they are actually realized. :-)
