DESCRIPTION

A painting depicting an ordinary landscape hangs before the viewer in the center of the hall. But this painting is affixed to an easel that, instead of standing on the floor, is ‘standing’ on the ceiling, hanging upside down. Nonetheless, nothing happens to the painting; you can still view it in all of its virtues. Its position is completely normal, despite the abnormal positioning of the easel.
