ANAMORPHOSIS: An art form where the image is greatly distorted, appearing only from a specific vantage point or upon reflection in a cylindrical mirror (or reflecting cones and pyramids). The painting (by Julian Beever) on the pavement is fragmented and meaningless to most viewers. But find the sweet spot, and Whoa! A giant snail appears to crawl on the city bench. (www.julianbeever.net)

• Leonardo da Vinci is thought to have made the first anamorphic drawing in 1485, at a time when Renaissance artists were experimenting with perspective (Leonardo's Eye -Illusion).  Hidden images conveyed dangerous political statements, heretical ideas, and even erotic images.

The Ambassadors: A famous example is the 1533 painting by Hans Holbein called "The Ambassadors". When viewed from an extreme angle, a smudge at the bottom in an otherwise conventional painting reveals itself to be a grinning skull. Hans_Holbein the younger_The Ambassadors (amazing skull )

Medusa's Head pays homage to the legend of Perseus, who could only look upon the snake headed monster in the reflection of his shield: http://www.moillusions.com/2011/12/an-anamorphic-medusa-painting.html
