We know it's still early, but this may just be the best selfie of the 2014 World Cup.

World Cup Selfie

To commemorate this year's FIFA World Cup, London-based artist Emma Allen transformed herself into the competition's iconic trophy before snapping a selfie and posting it on the Interwebs.

"I painted myself as the World Cup," the 33-year-old artist wrote in an Imgur caption that accompanied the stunning snap.

According to the London Evening Standard, Allen -- who donned a bald cap before slathering herself in paint -- spent nearly three hours transforming herself into the World Cup trophy.

“The hardest thing was getting my arms and hands in the right position. I took a lot of pictures before settling on the final one," she said, per the news outlet.

Allen's World Cup selfie has been viewed on Imgur more than 570,000 times since being posted online last week.

We can certainly see why.
