In the narrower sense of the word, an illusion is a trick of the senses or a false perception of reality. Optical illusions can be created using various elements: movement, brightness and contrast, colors, geometrical and angular illusions or even three-dimensionality. Various painters and artists use these optical techniques to create unusual and surprising effects for the observer in a bid to evoke amazement and astonishment.

The Swiss artist Sandro Del-Prete is an important representative of drawings and objects involving optical illusions, which he calls "illusorism". A typical example of this is his oil painting "The Bridge of Life", which was used as the model for the silver coin. Writing about this painting, he said, among other things: "The people are perpetually moving forward, towards the observer, and are never seen from behind. They are always heading towards the end of life. As no one gets younger as time passes, no one can be seen from behind either."
