I've always loved Escher because of the way his art messes with your mind. Just recently, because of a book Devac suggested to me, I learned some interesting new facts about his work: the Circle Limit series are representations of hyperbolic space.

So that leaves me wondering what other mathematical gems are hidden in art that I would never guess just by looking at it.
