When Is A Parrot Not A Parrot? When It’s A Woman Wearing Bodypaint

I’ve seen some impres­sive body­paint illu­sions before but this one is absolutely incred­i­ble.

If you’d showed me this photo and asked me what I was look­ing at, I would have said a parrot. Even after read­ing that it was in fact some­one painted to look like a parrot I really had to stare at it to figure out the details.

It’s much easier for me to see again now that I’ve seen it but it still looks very like a parrot. Great paint­ing, care­ful posing and also well photographed.

An amaz­ing bit of art by Johannes Stöt­ter. His other images are well worth look­ing at too.
