Please excuse the Department of Astonishing Optical Illusions. They know mouth breathing is considered impolite by some, but they can’t get their jaws off the floor while looking at this incredible trompe-l’œil mural created by French artist collective CitéCréation.
At first glance it’s all too easy to believe there’s no mural on this building at all. That is, until you see a photo of what the building, located at 40 Boulevard des Canuts in Lyon, France, originally looked like.
To get a closer look at this magnificent mural, check out the building’s intersection on Google Street View.
