Go Ahead, Try To Wrap Your Mind Around This Optical Illusion Painting

This is a painting.

Within the painting, are several other paintings. Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, Damien Hirst.

But, tilt your head and the paintings move from within their fixed position inside the canvas. Perspectives run amok and you feel as though you're traipsing through an M.C. Escher-designed art gallery.

"Then it mustn't be a painting!" some bold, Oliver Twist-esque naysayer might utter.

Oh, but it is. Just watch the video above and try to wrap your mind around the three-dimensional optical illusion, courtesy of Gallery at Ice and artist Brian Weavers.
