This is a 3D painting that you don't need 3D glasses to see. The effect is created by focusing on the statue for a few seconds and then you will realize that the loggia is not out of focus, it is simply in the background. You cannot get this effect by using traditional photography because the camera only has one lens, instead of the two "lenses" that we use to see.

To reproduce this effect hold your hand out and focus on it, everything in the background will go double, just like the apples in the painting.
