Ceci n'est pas une pipe

Have you ever heard of Magritte's, "la trahison des images" (the treachery of images)? Ceci n'est pas une pipe (this is not a pipe) sounds absurd, but it's actually true, since "ceci" (this) refers to the painting, not the thing represented. Or not? In any case, next time you see picture or a photo, think twice about what you're seeing. It fun and at the same time, of the utmost importance
