At first glance, the Polygon Double Deer #2 sculpture will have you seeing two. At first you might think that you have simply been staring at your computer too long, until you realize that the art piece simply has a subtle optical illusion built right into it. There are two deer heads, one overlapping another, in such a way as to give this classic taxidermy wall mount a modern artistic twist. Of course, it will already seem quite contemporary to you since its most obvious deviation from the traditional taxidermy art form is the lack of fur and the predominance of some kind of manmade material.

Created by artist Kohei Nawa, the Polygon Double Deer #2 faceted surface is almost as intriguing as the beaded surfaces found through her PixCell series.
