The over-used image of the pipe by Rene Magritte is a good example of art imitating life. It is not a pipe at all, merely representation of something we recognise and call "a pipe".

Whether it is the use of colour to mimic nature, or evocation of some feeling or picture-perfect likeness, all art can ever do is suggest, imply, mimic and imitate.
