The stereoscope is a simple optical instrument which allows us to see in relief drawings and photographs. For us, to see in three dimensions a solid body, is a fact so natural that we do not even take it into account. Also it is normal to see "flat", that is to say lacking a third dimension; drawings or pictures. Did you ever ask yourself why this occurs? The phenomena is so natural and obvious that many people do never pay attention to it.
