Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972)

Maurits Cornelis Escher (M. C. Escher)

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) - embossed metal candy Chocolate tin with sea shell and starfish design

In 1963 the N.V. Verenigde Blikfabriek (United Tin Can Producers) in Doesburg and Krommenie, The Netherlands commissioned M. C. Escher to design a candy tin.

He designed an icosahedron with sea shell and starfish - a polychrome photolithographic process print on pressed metal with hinged top.

"The design is based on Sketch #42 (Shells and Starfish). The design of the tin can is equivalent to a tessellation of the sphere. The can has the form of a regular icosahedron with 20 triangular faces. Each vertex is covered by a starfish which shows 5-fold symmetry and in the interior of each triangular face three shells are arranged so they have 3-fold rotational symmetry"
