Here is another woodcut print by the famous M. C. Escher at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY at a past exhibit. This was “The Watering Can” 1931 produced in an Emblemata, a book of 27 woodcuts with four lines of writing at the bottom. The top saying is in Latin and roughly says:” I pour out an abundance of not plenty of deep waters”.  The one on the bottom in Dutch roughly says: “A lafenis provides in moderation, on her time, life grows, and stretches: one rain drop”

ISO 640, F/4.5, 1/125 sec, 105 mm Lens
