Before scrolling further down in the story, take a few minutes to analyze the photo below and figure out what it really shows. The only clue we can offer is that it is definitely not a parrot.
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 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.
