Looking at a painting of Peter van Oostzanen one gets the impression that one is looking at a different reality. It is as if one is looking through a window at another world. A world in which other laws of nature apply. Subjects have other functions and human beings act differently than we are used to. This way another world is created. At first sight it looks like the world we live in, but it is clear that that is not the case. One is put on the wrong foot in a world that is upside down. Just as a story written by Roald Dahl,in which a story at the end always comes out differently as one would expect. The intention of this all is to let one realise that the world around us is not as self evident as it seems. Our outlook at the world around us is determined by what we have been taught and by the way our brains are constantly filling up what we see, to make up the image we expect to see. It should lead us to think about reality without leading us to the conclusion why things are as they are.
