Julian Beever returns with another impressive 3d perspective chalk drawing, this one is a promotion for DHL and shows a hole to China through which a delivery is being passed. It would be handy if it were that easy to deliver a parcel to the other side of the world however the Earth being only one-foot deep would be something of a concern.

How easy is it to lose a horse ? This painting by talented artist Bev Doolittle features a number of pinto horses that are the same colour as their background. While it doesn't represent the level of camouflage a real horse is likely to be capable of it does however provide a stunning optical illusion. How many horses can you see in the painting ?

This illusion shows a dalmation sniffing around on the ground. The dog itself nor its surroundings can be identified by any one of the shapes in the image, but when taken as a whole the image of the dog can be recognised.

This classic illusion consists of a series of shelves attached to a wall, but exactly how many shelves are there ? Try counting them from the left and then from the right, are they the same ?

This remarkable perspective illusion was created by artist Felice Varini, the lines drawn on the wall produce the effect of a two-dimensional square and cross that appear to exist in three-dimensional space but only when viewed from one specific angle.
