Check out a very large-scale use of Trompe L'oeil ("that which deceives the eye") painting shown on this site:

There is a wonderful anamorphic projection incorporated in the bridge:

Very good.

If you want really amazing Tompe Loeil, take a trip to the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City to look at the ceiling. It is extraordinary, and much better than in the photos. The real subtlety is that it is painted onto a curved surface, which profoundly affects the illusion. The walls are not bad either.

Awesome, it looks so amazingly realistic. There was an article about a magician who's house has loads of Trompe L'oeil paintings all over it. It was either in Magic or Genii—if you PM me I will dig out the date etc.

If anyone is looking for a good example of a Trompe Loeil mural painter try a search for John Pugh. He's done some amazing large scale stuff!

That's some awesome stuff. If only someone could think of a way to incororate that into an illusion.

Just looked at the site. Cant quite get my head round them.
It's a small world... but you wouldn't want to hoover it.
