Before you scroll down for the answer, take a long, hard look at the image, and see if you can work out what it is.

Give up? The ‘parrot’ is actually a woman posing in full body paint.  Cool, right!? This incredible, tricky creation was conjured by former world champion body painter Johannes Stoetter, according to the Daily Mail.

“The 35-year-old artist, who lives in Italy, spent four weeks painstakingly planning how he could transform the female model into a parrot,” the report states. “He took four hours to paint the woman’s body using special breathable paint – adding intricate detail, dark shading and even a bright green eye.”

It took a whole hour to position the model juuuuuust right on a tree trunk to take this awesome photo.
