These images look, at first glance, like paintings of 12 astrological symbols done on canvas. Take a closer look and you’ll see they are actually the painted bodies of 60 different strategically posed models. Astrological Symbols took a year for artist Trina Merry and her team to complete with work happening in New York City and San Francisco.

Some Chameleon species are known for their ability to change color and blend in with their surroundings. However, the image above is not a chameleon.

In a startling twist, it’s actually two women wearing cleverly applied body paint.

Indeed, artist Johannes Stötter has made it look like two women are a single chameleon crawling along a branch. It took him four hours to design the piece and another six to apply the paint with the help of an assistant. It’s hard to see their individual bodies at all until they slowly separate and break the illusion.

During the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, friends and family pay homage to loved ones that have passed on and help guide their spirit through the afterlife. The festival includes customs of cooking the departed’s favorite foods, building ofrendas, and making decorated sugar skulls in honor of Mictecacihuatl, the Lady Of The Dead.

Inspired by this beautiful tradition, California-based photographer Tim Tadder created a stunning photo series called ‘Las Muertas.’ His subjects adorn intricate makeup from artist Krisztianna and evocative costumes from designer Julia Reeser.

Macabre and mezmorizing, check out more pics from the series after the break.
