Push/Pull: Part 2

Here is an example of what appears to be a colorful shape that has a part missing sitting on the top of a black shape that is thus partially seen.
And here is what appears to be a black bust sitting on top of a colorful background.
But put the two of them together and you get an example of Push/Pull.  

(Scroll over the white blank to have this revealed.)

The top portion comes forward out of the background while the lower portion suggests it is behind.

This ambiguity makes the composition visually more interesting.

(My thanks to René Magritte for loaning us the male silhouette.)
