Instead of using one-point perspective, which gives the perception of looking through a window into real space, this artist has employed other devices to show depth. Overlapping shapes indicate that one building is in front of another, while placing people and walls higher up in the picture plane illustrates that they are further in the distance. Also notice that the building decoration is very plain, except around the most important figure, the nobleman shooting doves.
