tortoiseshell cat on stairsMore than 500 years ago clever Chinese artists invented mirror anamorphic optical illusions to conceal politically dangerous or socially offensive images in plain sight. (OOZ & OZ uses that concept today to entertain and educate our tech-savvy kids!) Today, too, one Chinese artist – master camouflager Liu Bolin – is creating new optical illusion
art designed to challenge the eye and the mind. His brilliant unique
work delights and engages us rather like this photo of a tortoiseshell
cat perched on a leaf-motif carpet.

Have you seen Liu Bolin’s performance art? Could be you have and
didn’t know it. Images below weren’t digitally enhanced. They’re real!
