Motion illusion by colors is like in the given picture

enter image description here

My inquiry is about the implementation of the heavy use of colors to form patterns and designs on the walls in medieval Christian and Islamic art. Did they use such art patterns anywhere? I would like to see the earliest examples of optical illusions with colors. It is also okay if examples are from other cultures such as Indian, Chinese history, etc.

    First reaction is that a more likely explanation for that is iconoclasm, but its a good question. – T.E.D. May 10 '17 at 18:17
