The Two Mysteries.

Name: The Two Mysteries.
Artist: Rene Magritte
Location: Private collection
Year: 1966

As usual, Margitte plays a visual trick with us. We see a pipe, painted on a canvass, and another pipe floating in space. Is one pipe more real than the other? Are both pipes illusions? This is a mystery.

Margitte says: "The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown."
