This Parrot is a Woman Posing in Bodypaint: PHOTO


Keep looking. You'll see it.

The photo was created by artist Johannes Stoetter, a former world champ body painter.

Writes 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. 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.

  6. Beau, wtf are you talking about? I wasn't trolling. I was making an analogy. This woman arranges and displays herself so as to appear to the unaware viewer as a parrot. It is very much like how some transwomen can successfully pass as women. It's a very beautiful display.

  7. Beau, the answer is that it's Rick. He had a bit of a melt down today. So he's taking it out on the people that call him out most. It's actually pretty sad. But mostly funny.

  10. Why is this website linking to extremist homophobic newspaper the Daily Mail (or the Daily Heil as it's known in Britain.)

  12. Way too much free time.

  13. Derrick From Philly - You make an interesting point. Does something become something else just because it looks like something else? If the woman claimed a species identity as a parrot and painted and posed herself to look like a parrot, would that really make her a parrot?
