This video shows how bodypaint techniques can be used to create stunning visual illusions and imagery. The video appears to show nothing more than a giant black and white painting of Pandora Sphinx moth, a moth commonly found across North America. Upon closer inspection, however, there's more to it than just that.
If you keep watching the video closely, a pair of eyes opens near the moth's neck. It quickly becomes clear that these eyes belong to a human head that bends downwards and gazes at you, by which point you should be freaking out. If you aren't, you will be once a pair of hands emerges from the moth's tail.
At this point, it becomes obvious that this is a painting of a moth but embedded with a woman covered in bodypaint to conceal her and make her look like she is a part of the painting. This fantastic bodypaint-aided illusion was created by Roustan Bodypaints.
