Convex and Concave is concerned with the widely known phenomenon of spatial suggestion which can be imagined as convex or concave, as desired. In the middle of the picture Escher draws the shapes in such a way that the observer may just as well see them convex as concave; to the right he forces you to see things in a convex way (e.g. "cube from the outside"); to the left, you have to view things in a concave way ("cube from the inside").
