Would you believe me if I told you that this fantastic portico doesn’t really exist! It’s “just” a mural, and what A Mural, I must say! It was painted by artist named Richard Haas on the facade of the Brotherhood building in Cincinnati, Ohio in year 1983. This Mural is real example of trompe l’oeil (“to deceive the eye”) or faux finishes, how some call them. Do you like it?
