Talented Singaporean artist Keng Lye, whom we previously wrote about here, is back with more of his stunning fish and aquatic wildlife illusions.

Lye’s method is a brilliant bit of trickery. By pouring layers of crystal-clear synthetic resin and painting on it, he creates the illusion that what we’re actually looking at is a bowl with a fish or a turtle in it. The 3D illusion is completed by adding protrusions to make it look as though the turtle’s wet shell is poking out of the water. This time, he also gave one of his fish a sideways view as well. Can you tell the difference between his artwork and the real thing?
