Look closely - this is not what you think it is!

Info from the BBC web site:

A picture that requires a double take: this parrot is in fact a female model who posed for ‘world bodypainting champion’ Johannes Stötter. The Italian artist – whose frog image was an Internet hit – spent weeks planning the transformation, taking four hours to paint his subject with ink. The model’s arm forms the parrot’s head and beak, and her legs form the wing and tail feathers.

The parrots eye is on her forehead.

Got it now. I was viewing it originally on my phone. But now with the ipad it's much clearer. Very cool.

I wasn't seeing it at first then there she was. That is pretty cool, makes you wonder how the artist saw that in their head in the first place. Thanks for sharing. Seeing things that trick the eye is fun. Perspective!

Funny how difficult it is to "unsee" the woman and go back to seeing the parrot once you have noticed her.

he's pining for the fjords, pushing up the daisies, singing for the choir invisible...
