The word 'Trick Eye' is a shortend version of the English expression of 'Trompe-l'oeil', meaning 'trick of the eye'. The purpose of this art is to intentionally confuse the audience by making flat 2D paintings into 3D images. The unique part of the museum is that visitors can freely touch, take photos, and interact with the art.
