The carpet paintings of Antonio Santin, an artist hailing from Madrid, Spain, but based in New York City, may look realistic, but they are in fact works of art. In a way, that is a bit heartening considering that the carpet painting appear to revolve around an eerie and even supernatural aspect that manifests itself in a bulge under each rug.

Whatever the carpet paintings are meant to represent, that is left up the viewer. By doing so, people are able to connect with each work of art in a deeply personal way. After all, whatever a person imagines is lurking beneath each rug will probably represent something psychological about themselves and their lives. Other than that, the carpet paintings are noteworthy for their attention to detail.
