I think my favorite is "art imitating life imitating art imitating life." At first I thought it was just the stairway that was painted - then I thought it was the stairway and the woman at the table...but it turns out the whole thing is a mural - the statue, the painting behind the statue, the doorway and stairs, the woman at the table, the floor....it's absolutely incredible.

Here you can see the preliminary sketch and the painting of the statue.

At least your guess was better than mine. I actually thought "I wonder why they put that one in there, it's not a painting of anything!"

Amazes me that some people are so talented. No telling what the human mind/body is capable off.

I'd love to commision him to do something like this in my house - then I could laugh my butt off whenever new people came over and walked into the wall. :D

EDIT: oh yeah and the one with the ship in the bottle - the guy standing in front is part of the painting too - like the girl looking at the Aztec statues.

EDIT2: oh wait maybe the ship in the bottle isn't in this clip. lol nevermind.
