    This could be done as real picture if you shaded it right. Force yourself to continue seeing the top-bottom formation on the right hand slide as well as the left, and you just see that the side of the top block is shaded. The handed messes it up but without the hand you, could make this.

    I`ve got no clue, but I`m guessing the guy`s covering part of the wood for a reason.

    calling it your hand my wood is a little misleading...

    The top corner of the top wood piece just has a lighter color, making it look like its beside the bottom wood piece. This is a crappy optical illusion

    It took me forever to see what was weird about the picture. I was just like "what, two pieces of wood on top of each other."

    and then I looked a while...

    and thought "oh, if you look at it right, it looks like the top one is also next to the bottom one."

    The top piece had the right corner cut off at an angle and a different triangular piece was glued on. Pay no attention to the hand.

    It`s two pieces of wood mounted on each other. It`s not a lighter wood color. Piece 2 is just sanded down on the left side, I believe.

    "Is that his penis?"

    I believe the real question is: Why is YOUR hand touching his wood?

    Actually, it`s just a tricky shape with a good camera angle. I`ve made one of these as an experiment. There are instructions you can find online for this and similar experiments.
