Trompe l'Oeil or just a 'Mug of Beer'

"Trompe l'oeil (pronounced tromp loy) is a French term which literally means “fool the eye.” It’s an art style which creates the optical illusion of dimension with nearly photographic realism.

This three-thousand-year-old art form creates the illusion of three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface. The lighting effects and the variety of textures required for these life-sized realistic paintings and drawings make them one of the most meticulously detailed fine art genres. "
Not so sure I got all the detail accurate so maybe this is just a "Mug of Beer".
