Look Closer: This Parrot is Actually a Woman

Bodypainted Parrot Lady

 

Not everything is at it seems. The title of this post isn’t meant to fool you, but unless you’ve got a really sharp eye, then you probably think you’ve been had because the picture is clearly that of a bird, not a woman–or is it?

It honestly took me a few minutes and several double-takes before I saw her. It’s so seamless that it’s easy to un-see even when you’ve already seen her. This work of impressive body painting art was done by artist Johannes Stoette, who’s eye for detail is truly something else. If you still haven’t spotted her, here’s a hint: check out the parrot’s tail first.

Now You Can Print Your Own ‘Animated’ Optical Illusions

Bored? Got a cat you want to play with? Then grab some paper and a sheet of transparency film and check out the clip above. It’s essentially a video of some cool and mind-boggling optical illusions that look like they’re moving–even though they’re not. Hence, the classification that they’re optical illusions.

Entertain some kids. Show your friends. Amaze your cat. This is at least something to do when you’re bored and are itching to do something.

You can check out the YouTube video link to get links to the designs that you can print out.
