Look at all those colors... those beautiful feathers, that elegant tail (bear with me, I am not a parrot aficionado, I am just trying to get you into the mood). And then, after you have admired it, look closer, closer, closer... stare at the picture until you realize that this isn't a parrot at all.... it's a woman meticulously made up to look like a bird!
The photo is the work of artist and former body painting champship Johannes Stoetter who spent four weeks planning this shoot, five hours setting it up, four hours painting the model, and another hour trying to find the pose that most resembled that of a real parrot.
The results is a beautiful and almost infuriating in its execution!
Having problems seeing her?
The tail is her left leg
and her beak is her left hand with
her arm flung over her head!
