I know this is not my first time to post about the San Agustin Church. And I have been itching to go back to this UNESCO World Heritage Site but my work schedule keeps me from visiting it.
This photo was taken last June 24, 2006. The photo shows the detailed artwork on the ceiling of the San Agustin Church. The ceiling looks like a detailed wood carving, right? No. Its not a carving. In fact the ceilings of San Agustin are all splashed with paintings. So realistic that they all look like wood carvings. This kind of art technique is called Trompe-l’oeil. In French, it roughly means “trick the eye”. This technique tries to depict drawings in a 3 dimensional manner.
