PDP #106: To Trick the Eye

Though the Sheppard subway is a narrow stub of its once-planned self, and thanks to the planned Sheppard East LRT it may never be anything greater, at least its stations were designed with an eye toward aesthetics. Each of the five stations along the line have an integral art component, each one different, and it's a drag that so few people (compared to other subway systems, at least) use these stations.

The art in Bayview station is focused on the trompe l'oeil technique, two-dimensional paintings arranged in such a way as to appear 3-D. I'm not precisely sure what this one is supposed to be, but hey! Doesn't it look something other than flat?
