The metal sculptures of South American artist Sanseviero, fool the eye of the viewer. His "illusion sculptures" appear to be 3 dimensional boxes with open centers that you can see through, yet they are only 1/16 of an inch thick. He first designs how the formation of "Boxes" will layout and then cuts and welds the flat sculpture he has created to the metal base. He then paints his sculpture with a "trompe l'oeil" or "Fool the Eye" effect so that the flat sculpture has volume and depth, he then paints the reverse side in the same manner so that the sculpture can be displayed facing either direction or in front of a mirror.
