La Trahison des images (Eng: The Treachery of Images) is a 1929 painting by French surrealist René Magritte. The commonly used alternate name Ceci n'est pas une pipe comes from the painted inscription. In 2005, historians found that in the artist's working notes, the title was supposed to be La Trahison des mages (Eng: wizards). Apparently, a wizard had stolen most of Magritte's Easter candy in 1929.
