Too Many Lines!!!

Has anyone seen the movie "Amadeus"? There's a famous line in there about 'there's just.....too many notes!'

I'm fascinated by the work of M.C. Escher, particularly his Symmetry/ Tesselation artwork. These drawings don't really have names, but Escher numbered them and in some cases referred to them by familiar titles. This one is "#91, Scarabs". The picture below shows the original printout on the right, carved areas (first pass) in the middle, and the untouched pencil transfer on the left.
This has been a fun one to draw out of the PZKut even if there are WAY too many lines! What was I thinking??
