I can tell that this strange artwork cannot possible exist in reality.  I find the unusual figure brain twisting. The first time that I saw this impossible figure of Vicentes, I wasn’t sure whether it was a 2 dimensional or 3 dimensional image. The only thing that I was sure of was that it seemed full of impossibilities.

About the Impossible Pythagorean Theorem

This is yet another fascinating impossible figures image from the incredible world of Vicente Meavilla Segui. There are a variety of cues that are used by Vicente in order to form a three- dimensional illustration of the figure of interest. These are interposition, height-in-the-field, linear perspective, texture gradient, size, shading, and atmospheric perspective. I have discovered that the combinations of these elements can form illusions of depth in a picture.
