  Trompe l'Oeil  (Pronounced: Tromp-Loy) "fool the eye" or  painted illusion.  It dates

 back as far as 400 B.C. and was part of rich culture of the Greek and Roman Empires.

Above are some examples of Tatiana Rugers Trompe l'Oeil murals -  painted  illusions of balusters, frames, tiles, arches , etc...

                     A story from ancient Greece.

 Two painters were rivals in a contest: each would try to make a picture that produced a more perfect illusion of the real world. One, named Zeuxis, painted a likeness of grapes so natural that birds flew down to peck at them. Then his opponent, Parrhasius brought in his picture covered with a cloth. Reaching out to lift the curtain, Zeuxis was stunned to discover he had lost the contest. What had appeared to be a cloth was in reality his rival's painting.

It's reported that Rembrandt's student painted coins on the floor of the studio for the pleasure of watching him trying to pick them up.
