Echer's Waterfall?

Someone mentioned Echer the other day when we were talking about perspective, and this happened to catch my attention. Of course, we're looking at a three dimensional object in only two dimensions, and we can't walk around it or turn it, but it certainly appears puzzling, doesn't it?

Anyone have an explanation? In any case, it's very cool. :-)

I think maybe the waterfall gizmo is digital. Maybe it isn't even there.

This reminds me of the opening of "Temple Grandin" with her walking from one side of the room to the other, all while "growing" in size. Another interesting exercise in POV. And, no, I do not understand how it is done. Clyde
