Improved artworks No 1


Here’s a historic artwork I reckon I’ve much improved.  On the left you see it as has been for the last five hundred years or so, a Spanish (I think) wood carving, of a martyred saint, now in the Petit Palais museum in Paris.

  1. I’m looking for a type of graphic that”pops out” at the person looking at the picture. If one UNfocuses his/her eyes they eventually see a 3d object amist the other shapes. For instance in a picture of 100 flowers, one BIG 3d flower of same color and pattern pops out from the whole. What’s that called???
