Another World

1947, Woodcut print

The three-dimensional world depicted in Another World is a paradox. Set inside a brick cube, we can see three pairs of archways; one that we’re looking down upon, one that we’re looking up at and one that is level. Through each archway we can see a glimpse of outer space—again, either from looking down, looking up or level. In each archway, a birdlike figure stands next to a hanging cornucopia.
