If You Think You Know What You’re Looking At Here, You’re Probably Wrong. It’s Simply Fascinating.

Even after I learned what the images below were, I still had a hard time recognizing the features I was supposed to be seeing in most of them. Let’s see if you can do better than me.

So, you’re about to see an incredible series of body paintings created by artists such as Emma Fay from the UK, Gesine Marwedel from Germany, Johannes Stoetter from Italy and many others whose astonishing works you can view at the website I Love Body Art.

I can only guess at the huge amount of work that goes to produce each of these awesome images. Make-up, lighting, positioning of the models have all combined with the artists’ prodigious imagination to fully conceal the shapes of the human bodies, making us believe that we are looking at an image of an animal. Incredible!
