M.C. Escher Nessie Drawing
Possible drawing of Man with a Flute calling Nessie on Loch Ness by M.C. Escher
This picture has not been verified that the picture is by Escher. It does appear, though, that the art experts who have examined it think it's supposed to be Nessie and that M.C. Escher is the likely artist. However the experts who apparently guard the Escher canon won't even look at the painting.
