But as you can see from this quirky list of accidental art compiled by Bored Panda, sometimes knocking something over can lead to pleasant and unexpected surprises. From spills that look like reindeer to stains that look like pandas, the pictures below might look deliberate but all of them were completely unintentional, proving that art really is in the eye of the beholder.
