Mural at Place Saint Denis, Montpellier
The mural is best viewed from the street level of Av. Georges Clemenceau. However, when viewed from a distance, it truly appears to have a three-dimensional face like those in its vicinity. The mural shows open windows, balconies and faux-stained glass along with painted reliefs and rosettes.
This mural is just one of the many Trompe-l'oeil works throughout Montpellier. However, the almost hidden nature of the mural gives it a more realistic appearance.
