These Paintings Don’t Make Any Sense, But When You Add A Mirror… BOOM.

Everyone knows that the Renaissance was an incredible time for progression in fine art, but not many people know about this particular kind of unusual art. It's called anamorphic art, and it's basically a distorted image that can only be seen normally with a special device.

Given the patience and perspective it takes to create this kind of art, the results are truly spectacular.
