René Magritte (1898-1967) painted in his Euclidean Walks a surrealist comparison between the actual geometry of the roof of a tower and the projective illusion of a street. Perhaps, this was the reason why he thought of the great Euclid for the title of this charming and surprising picture.

Oh Euclid! If you come back to our World you’ll see what provocations are inspired by your name!
