faux bois (illusionism, <visual and representational concepts>, ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Refers to illusionistic effects on two- or three-dimensional art works in which the appearance of wood grain is simulated. In interior spaces, pine and other inexpensive softwood paneling may be painted to imitate expensive woods such as oak, walnut and cedar. Plaster or wall paper may also be painted with a wood grain texture. The term may also refer to furniture or other objects, typically intended for use outdoors in a garden, where the objects appear to be made of branches or trunks of trees, both in their three-dimensional form and in the surface effect that simulates wood grain.

Dutch ..... Verwijst naar de illusie-effecten op twee- of driedimensionale kunstwerken waarin het uiterlijk van houtnerf wordt gesimuleerd. In interieurs kunnen panelen van vurenhout en andere goedkope zachte houtsoorten worden beschilderd om dure houtsoorten zoals eiken, noten en ceder te imiteren. Ook pleister of behang kan worden beschilderd met een houtnerfstructuur. De term kan ook verwijzen naar meubels of andere voorwerpen, meestal bedoeld voor buitengebruik in een tuin, waarbij de voorwerpen lijken te zijn gemaakt van boomtakken of -stronken, zowel in hun driedimensionale vorm als in het oppervlak met een imitatiehoutnerf. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere al efecto ilusionista en obras de arte bidimensional o tridimensional en los cuales se simula la apariencia de la veta de la madera. En espacios interiores, paneles de pino y otras maderas de coníferas de menor valor pueden ser pintados para imitar maderas de mayor valor, como el roble, nogal y cedro. El yeso o el papel mural también puede ser pintado con una textura de veta de madera. El término se puede referir a mobiliario u otros objetos, usualmente con la intención de ser usados en exteriores, en un jardín, en donde los objetos parecen estar hechos de ramas o troncos de árboles, ambos en su forma tridimensional y con el efecto de superficie que simula la veta de la madera.
