Giant Anamorphic Spiders

These huge optical illusion arachnids were painted by Seattle artist and science illustrator Marlin Peterson for a commission by the Washington State Artist Trust.

Okay, technically these aren’t spiders, they’re harvestmen. And technically they might be trompe l’oeil, rather than truly anamorphic. But if you were looking down on the roof of the Seattle Center Armory you’d be too busy freaking out to notice any of that.
