'Greetings from Giza' art installation by Jean Rene

In honor of April Fools' Day, take a moment to appreciate this trick of the eye created by French street artist and photographer Jean Rene, better known as JR. His cheeky public-art piece, installed in the desert sand as part of the 2021 'Forever is Now' exhibition, makes it look as if the detached tip of the Pyramid of Khafre magically hovers above its base.

Khafre is the second largest pyramid in the Giza complex, second to the Great Pyramid, whose capstone has been missing for all of modern history. (That's no joke.) The Great Pyramid's missing top has been the subject of much speculation and scholarly pursuit. This complex of pyramids was built around 2,600 to 2,500 BCE.

Visual illusions in art, a technique known as trompe l'oeil, is a specialty of JR, born in Paris in 1983 to a Tunisian mother. He always appears in public wearing a fedora and sunglasses, and has revealed very little of his identity. The enigmatic artist is most famous for making the glass-and-metal Louvre pyramid 'disappear.'

让·雷内的《吉萨的问候》艺术装置

为了纪念四月愚人节一点时间来欣赏法国街头艺术家和摄影师Jean Rene创造的这一奇观,他被称为小R。他那张厚颜无耻的公共艺术品,被安装在沙漠中,作为“2021永恒”展览的一部分,使它看起来像是哈夫雷金字塔的分离尖端奇迹般地悬浮在其基础之上。

卡夫雷是吉萨建筑群中第二大金字塔,仅次于大金字塔,大金字塔的顶石在现代历史上一直缺失。(这可不是开玩笑。)大金字塔缺失的顶部一直是许多猜测和学术研究的主题。这座金字塔群建于公元前2600年至2500年左右。

艺术中的视觉错觉是JR的特长,被称为trompe l'oeil,1983年出生于巴黎,母亲是突尼斯人。他总是戴着软呢帽和墨镜出现在公共场合,几乎没有透露自己的身份。这位神秘的艺术家以使玻璃和金属的卢浮宫金字塔“消失”而闻名。

Stepping into autumn

Look closely and you'll see a snake slithering down the steps of the Temple of Kukulcan (aka El Castillo or The Castle), in Chichen Itza, Mexico. Not a real snake, it's an image created by natural light and shadows only during the spring and fall equinoxes. The equinox (which means equal night in Latin) is either of the two times each year—like today, the first day of fall—when the Earth's orbit and position cause the Sun to pass directly over the equator, creating equal amounts of daylight and darkness. According to Mayan legend, on both equinoxes this pyramid is visited by Kukulcan, the feathered serpent god. Thousands of spectators gather to watch and celebrate as seven triangles of light slide down the pyramid, illustrating Kukulcan's descent.
