Trompe l'oeil ceiling fresco by Andrea Pozzo. The ceiling is completely flat, including the dome on the left. The photograph is taken from floor level in the centre of the church. The illusion effect of the dome is slightly better from a higher vantage point (eye level).

The illustionistic perspective of Pozzo's brilliant trompe-l'oeil dome at Sant'Ignazio (1685) is revealed by viewing it from the opposite end.

Giuseppe Arcimboldo (Italian pronunciation: [dʒuˈzɛppe artʃimˈbɔldo]; also spelled Arcimboldi) (1527 – July 11, 1593) was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books – that is, he painted representations of these objects on the canvas arranged in such a way that the whole collection of objects formed a recognizable likeness of the portrait subject.
