I kept on reading the news but the picture kept on attracting my attention. I finally read the caption underneath the image and then you know what happened... ...my jaw dropped open.
The parrot was in fact a female model who had been transformed into a parrot by world body painting champion Johannes Stötter. The model’s arm formed the parrot’s head and beak, and her legs form the wing and tail feathers.I had not heard about this Italian artist before but when I checked out his website, it was pretty cool.
His frog image using five men is also a great hit. Wow the creativity of some people is really amazing...you know jaw-dropping-ly amazing.
You can check out Johannes Stötter's artwork here.
As far as optical-illusions go this one is quite spectacular.
Edited: I got flagged for using images from the website as they were not for commercial use so I have removed them. You can visit the above link to see the parrot, frog etc for the amazing images.
