More of the same, by Julian Beever, including shots of the images from as seen from the wrong side, giving you an idea of what these look like in real life.

You know, these are an awesome idea to discourage unwanted desire lines in common/public areas.

This type of art was pretty cool the first time I seen them. Even after the 50th time they were still great - but they are starting to lose their appeal. Although it is still an impressive display of talent.

oh, and Mr F.L. Thief, your links are dead :(

I have never seen such 3D drawings in person but I guess they're not nearly as convincing as they are on these photos since we have two eyes and perceive depth (ie. you see it's flat even if the perspective is right).

Does anyone know of stereoscopic photos of 3D pavement art so I could check the effect myself?

Whenever there's a discussion of these I can't help but be reminded of their practical usage in the real world
