Trompe l’Oeil is a French term literally meaning “to deceive the eye.” It is artwork that attempts to be so realistic that the viewer is fooled into thinking that actual three-dimensional objects are being displayed rather than a two-dimensional representation of those objects.
So did this deceive you, even for a second, let me know! :-)
