In this illusion, the 17th Dutch marine artist Ludolf Bakhuizen’s painting “Ships on a Stormy Sea” is seemingly bought to life. The ship appears to be tossed around on a raging sea in a wild storm where the waves surge past and the clouds scud across the sky. With the hatches battened down, the crew are experiencing a roller coaster ride! However, this impression of wild motion is illusory.
