Hilarious!Good old Garry Trudeau will never run out of material, especially with so many issues that need to be addressed these days! Goodnuff 28 October 2018 Bill_I_Am, there's no "butting in"; it's just a conversation! And good that you commented, because I didn't realize the work is a photograph! How cool! Bill_I_Am 28 October 2018 @Tincup and @ElvisBanana I thought you might enjoy this. A link to it arrived in a newsletter from A.Word.A.Day with the title "Trump d’œil."https://www.gocomics.com/doonesbury/2017/07/05 ElvisBanana 21 October 2018 Thanks to you both, Goodnuff and Bill!I'm not really sure why I wasn't smart enough to click on the image copyright - I do it all the time with Bill's puzzles! It was quite interesting to read the comments, especially those by the artist. It shed a lot of light on the subject (though the light was striated!).This has been a very fun puzzle. Solving it was just the beginning. Learning more about it has been a real hoot! Thanks again, Goodnuff, and thanks for your help, Bill. Bill_I_Am 21 October 2018 Sorry, Goodnuff. Didn't mean to butt in. I wanted Elvis to see that it is a photograph, not a painting. And yes, that is the name Lúcia P gave it, too. It makes a fabulous puzzle! Goodnuff 21 October 2018 Wow, Elvis, you are really stretching my memory. I had to look it up the puzzle to see why I gave it that title, and meanwhile Bill beat me to it. Yes, optical illusion is the correct answer, most usually, in my experience, when a flat surface is made to appear 3-D. Bill_I_Am 21 October 2018 Elvis, click on the image copyright! ElvisBanana 21 October 2018 One more comment, I just translated "Trompe l'oeil" from French, and the result I got was "optical illusion". ElvisBanana 21 October 2018 Gosh, Goodnuff, I'm awfully late to this party, but I'm sure glad I made it!When I first saw your title for the puzzle, I thought it was also the title of an art installation. After poking about the internet for a few minutes, I assume I was wrong.So I'll take a guess, and would ask you to please let me know whether or not I'm correct.Trompe l'oeil is a technique of painting or otherwise creating an image that fools the eye. This looks like some type of scene under a bridge or in a garage, with a wall that has circular holes, and light streaming down through slats overhead. What I THINK is REALLY the case is that this is a painting on a flat wall or canvas, made to look like the scene I just described. How'd I do?Regardless of my success, or lack thereof, in trying to guess what I'm seeing, this has been a very interesting and (once I hear your reply) educational puzzle. Thanks so much, I LOVE puzzles like this! Tincup 17 September 2018 Thanks for tapping me on the virtual shoulder, Bill. Yes, I love Lucia P (m lucia). Wonderful photo! Bill_I_Am 17 September 2018 This is sooo cool! And such a coincidence because I love Lúcia P's work--she has such an amazing eye. I first "met" her in @Tincup 's puzzles. Thanks so much, Goodnuff! Annetta 17 August 2016 Nice puzzle!!! Why this advertisement?
