This Artist Turned Hands Into Animals, and It's Not as Weird as You Think

Have you ever looked down at your hand and thought, "This just looks SO much like a bald eagle"? Good, same.

Proving that body painting is not limited to nerd conventions, Milan-based artist Guido Daniele transforms hands into hyper-realistic animals. "Handimals" is a project Daniele has been working on since the early 2000s, and it is currently in its US debut at Top of the Rock.

Take a look at "Handimals" below, and be sure to check out Daniele's website, and his exhibition at Top of the Rock in NYC's Rockafeller Center, on display until January 25th.
