i could make that in real life. first take two small pipes attach to a piece of wood get another pipe the same size collapse one end attach to bottom of wood. and it will look like that.

i had 2 draw this for art it was best with no color behind it, if u tilt the picture it gives it an even better illusion. this is used more in greek buildings btw.

Wird !., but what makes confuse is the shape on the front from those supposed tubes, they should be squares not circulars .
