This stereoscopic work is observed with two special mirrors. Each eye is presented a picture in a relevant angle. Through the perfection of the painting, the brain produces a spectacular three-dimensional picture. A trained eye can recognise the 3D effect without the mirrors by seeing the intersection cross eyed.
