Did you get it?

The picture is actually of a woman in body paint posing in such a way that she looks exactly like a parrot. We know — it’s really impressive. It may take a while for some to finally see the woman in the photo, but she’s there.

The art was dreamed up by former world champion body painter Johannes Stoetter, according to the Daily Mail.

“The 35-year-old artist, who lives in Italy, spent four weeks painstakingly planning how he could transform the female model into a parrot,” the report states. “He took four hours to paint the woman’s body using special breathable paint – adding intricate detail, dark shading and even a bright green eye.”

He spent yet another hour positioning the paint-covered model on a tree trunk before he started snapping photos.
