This amazing optical illusion of a girl on a path is making rounds on the Internet, and surprisingly no one has mentioned the author. Do you know who the author is?

Update: according to our facebook fan Nolwenn Chauvin, this is a work by Japanese artist Makoto Aida titled AZEMICHI (a path between rice fields). Business Week says that this acrylic painting is a parody of the best-known work of Kaii Higashiyama, a major figure in Japanese modern painting. Makoto Aida was at a loss what to do after graduating from a prestigious art college in 1991 and took nearly a year to paint this picture [1].
