A room in the Palazzo Pitti, a Medici palace,
Just about every element above the door level is an illusion: paint on a flat surface.
There are no balconies;
There are no railings;
There are no statues;
There are no men standing on the balconies on the far left;
There are no curved arches;
There are no three-dimensional decorations on the ceiling.
Paint, paint, paint on a flat surface.
The projection of power and wealth through a magic trick.
The emperor has no clothes.
