It looks like a simple painting of a parrot perched on a tree stump, but take a closer look and a whole different story begins to emerge.

The figure atop the log is in fact a female model who has posed for body-painting supremo Johannes Stoetter. A former body-painting world champion, the Italian artist takes his inspiration from the natural world and has gained a reputation for creating eye-bending masterpieces. His latest work is this intricate design that is so lifelike it is often mistaken for a real parrot.

Last year, he used five people to produce a life-like tree frog – painting their bodies and limbs to resemble the animal’s body, legs, arms and head. Check out the YouTube clip below:
