Once someone points out that it looks like she’s peeing you’ll never be able to see it any other way.
This piece by Ole-Sigurd Walla is interesting in that it contains no obviously supernatural elements, yet we know it’s not simply a still life with a resting owl. Just by looking at it, one can tell it’s part of a world of fantasy, and might even guess its title: “The Wizard’s Table.” Such is the power of archetypes.
