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

Before lean startups there was lean manufacturing. And Toyota was the laboratory where many of these lean principles were tested for the first time at scale. So, I’ve been reading up on some of the first hand experiences that came from that formative time that these lean principles were being implemented. In doing so, I came across an exchange between a Toyota manager, James Wiseman, and his then supervisor, and now Toyota Worldwide chairman, Fuj...

Excellent! Was suffering with back pain and sciatica for months until Dave from ThreeSpires started treating me. The home visits at weekends fitted perfectly round by work schedule.
