inferior mirage
A boat is turned into a funny looking machine because its lower part is replaced by an inverted image of the upper part. Hover the cursor over the image to view the part of the boat that is not affected by the mirage producing layer.

[Still taken from Les mirages, Histoires de chimères et de la fée Morgane, a documentary film by Michael ENGLER, broadcast by Arte on April 18, 1998. Copies of this remarkable film can be purchased at : Image-over script by Chris POOLE]
