Artist and fine art body painter Johannes Stötter has recently completed a wonderful piece of optical illusion artwork where he has transformed a woman into a astoundingly life-like parrot.

By applying his impressive bodypainting skills and cleverly arranging the model’s body, he has managed to create an image that at first glance looks just like a parrot perched on a wooden pole—it is only upon closer inspection that one realises that this feathered creature is actually a human being in disguise.
