It might look like a tarantula, but it most certainly isn’t.
What your eyes are staring at is in fact a contortionist who has been morphed into a super-sized spider by body painter Emma Fay, 27.
According to Barcroft TV, the artist used water-based paints to transform the ultra-flexible model into a giant arachnid.
Fay, who spends about five hours of work on each project, has completed other realistic animal transformations, including a seahorse and giraffe.
