According to Wikipedia, "mirror anamorphosis (or catoptric anamorphosis) are a part of the 17th century art. With mirror anamorphosis, a conical or cylindrical mirror is placed on the drawing or painting to transform a flat distorted image into a three dimensional picture that can be viewed from many angles. The deformed image is painted on a plane surface surrounding the mirror. By looking uniquely into the mirror, the image appears "undeformed" and as the artist wants the subject to appear. In the 1600s and 1700s, this process of anamorphosis made it possible to diffuse caricatures, erotic and scatological scenes and scenes of sorcery for a confidential public."
