''Still Life with Spherical Mirror'' is a lithography print by the Dutch artist M. C. Escher first printed in November 1934. It depicts a setting with rounded bottle and a metal sculpture of a bird with a human face seated atop a newspaper and a book. The background is dark, but in the bottle can be seen the reflection of Escher's studio and Escher himself sketching the scene. Self-portraits in reflective spherical surfaces can be found in Escher's early ink drawings and in his prints as late as the 1950s. The metal bird/human sculpture is real and was given to Escher by his father-in-law. This sculpture appears again in Escher's later prints ''Another World Mezzotint (Other World Gallery)'' (1946) and ''Another World'' (1947).
