2 paintings showing the 2 sides of 2 dimensions, right?

David and Goliath by Daniele da Volterra (Louvre INV 566)

So in art, we have 2 dimensions (paintings) and 3 (sculpture). da Volterra gives us 2 dimensions x 2. We get to see the same scene from one side then the other. To reinforce the point, the paintings are free standing in the middle of the aisle.
