Anamorphic Art

My friend Dan just sent me a link to the work of artist Julian Beever, who creates Anamorphic Street Art. If you'd like to find out more about Anamorphic Art, Count On has an interesting explanation, as well as a description and pictures of Andrea Pozzo's anamorphic painting on the ceiling of St. Ignazio in Rome.

Perhaps one of the most famous anamorphic painting's is Hans Holbein's "The Ambassadors", in which an odd form at the bottom of the painting reveals itself to be a human skull if viewed from the proper angle.

This Italian site has some interesting anamorphic sculptures with mirrors built into them.

Here is one more example of Beever's work, viewed from the correct angle, and then again from the side.
