This is Not a Pipe

“The Treachery of Images” is a 1929 painting by surrealist painter René Magritte.

A likeness of a pipe, without the Affordances of a pipe.

Hence the treachery, a representation without holding any affordance of the representation.

Affordance is what the environment offers the individual. James J. Gibson coined the term in 1966.
