    A young woman is standing on the right side of the first floor looking at the surrounding mountains from Abruzzo in Italy near Castrovalva. If you only look at her, there is nothing to worry about. Her floor runs from left to right through the statue. Two visitors climb up to her via a ladder. Something strange happens between those two floors. In the words of Escher: “On the floor of the bottom platform, so indoors, there is a ladder, along which two people are climbing upwards. But when they arrive one floor higher, they are out in the open again and have to enter the building again. ”* The top figure, a jester, is clearly already standing on the outside of the floor where the young woman is standing with a ladder. However, the man who just wants to climb the ladder is in the building. Moreover, that space runs through the image from front to back. So his floor runs transversely to her floor and yet her floor is supported by pillars that start on the back and front corners of his floor! The construction of both floors together still looks rectangular, both to one side and to the other: an optical illusion pur sang.

"Belverdere" Escher puzzle

The mystery of this folly (an impossible or bizarre building) is great and as usual with Escher, the impossibility is not immediately noticeable. Still, something intriguing happens that keeps you looking.
