Some of the animal hand art created by Guido Daniele, an artist based in Milan, Italy, will truly blow people's minds. They are so realistic, it would be easy to mistake them for real creatures at first and even second glance. Considering that he began as a hyper-realistic illustrator puts this series of animal hand art into perspective.

Visual News writes, "Combining the manual dexterity of shadow-puppetry with vibrant paint, he’s transforming his model’s hands into an animal menagerie that’s surprisingly realistic." From slithering snakes to polar bears and delicate butterflies, this series of animal hand art is incredibly impressive. Although Daniele also specializes in body art, the fact that he could use such a small portion of someone's anatomy in a convincing way is worthy of note.
