Perhaps you are thinking of anamorphosis?  The most famous example is
probably Holbein's The Ambassadors, rcetnyl restored and hanging in
London's National Gallery.  Also one of Edward VI there.

For discussions of Holbein, see Lacan and Greenblatt, and, more
generally, see Timothy Murray's essay.

David Nicol's friend might enjoy the work of the later C16 Milanese
painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who constructed what seem at a little
distance to be human faces and figures that on closer inspection are
platters of vegetables.  You can link to a couple of these at
http://gallery.euroweb.hu/html/a/arcimbol/index.html.

Optical-illusively,
David Evett
