A moment of light relief

I was sent this picture by my friend, Scout John. At first it appears to be a photo of a parrot but look closely. The parrot is in fact a female model who posed for Johannes Stötter, a fine art body painter.

Using breathable paint, he spent hours painstakingly turning this woman into the image of a parrot, brushstroke by brushstroke. The model’s arm form the parrot’s head and beak, and her legs form the wing and tail feathers. Once you see the lady in the picture, you no longer see a parrot.



Thanks go to Scout John for this intriguing piece of art.
