    It is indeed but that doesn't take away its interest. Since Escher made his drawings many people have imitated them both in 2D and 3D objects.

    Thanks for posting it Frank
    Best regards,

    The consensus seems to be it's a combination of clever construction (it's actually built flat on the floor) a good angle for the illusion, and cgi-generated water. Oh, and a powered pump...

    Still cool, though!
