At first glance, I would have automatically assumed that Greek artist Teodosio Sectio Aurea was just another douche bag “artiste” trying to pass off an ugly ramshackle mess of metal and junk slapped together as “art”.  But as they say, true beauty lies within and in this case, it is almost unrecognizable until you shine some light onto it.  Check this out.

The “hideous” creation above looks like a cheap flower pot that someone wanted to get rid of at a garage sale right?  Well guess again…

With a little lighting, this cheap looking plastic house plant turns into the silhouette of a beautiful, exotic, nude dancer ready to seduce any man that comes near.  Too bad it’s just a faux-bonsai tree!

This twisted and gnarled mess becomes a sexy young woman with a pearl necklace (pun intended)

Whatever that seemingly pile of shit (at first glance it looks like clay or tin foil mashed together by a child) appears to be, become a spunky young woman, doing a little skip and dance.  How realistic the shadow is is unbelievable.

Speaking of dancers, this flamenco dancer is too awesome! I used to hate “modern art” because I always though slapping together a bunch of metal and selling it for thousands is full of shit and child’s play….  I was wrong.

Simply amazing is an under statement…  Upon first glace, this sculpture looks like complete nonsense, the work of an egotistical artist trying to scrape in a few bucks by doing something bizarre.  This, however is beyond belief and the scrap metal suddenly turns into a gypsy dancer or some kind of hippie chick doing a little dance.

It doesn’t matter how you look at the artwork itself, you would never have guessed this sculpture, a piece that appears like something out of a junk yard would turn into the image on the wall.  A nightmarish creation suddenly becomes and even more awesome nightmarish creation!  The final result looks like something twisted, out of Hell Raiser or something like that.

A unicorn from a withered house plant?  The mythical beast suddenly becomes reality when you turn on the lights.  How amazing is that?

This one is my absolute favorite, just because I am a hopeless romantic.  Imagine giving this as a gift for Valentine’s Day?  Imagine the before and after look on your significant other’s face when he or she sees this!

I am still blown away buy this…  Imagine coming home after purchasing this flower pot and not knowing what it was, then you turn on the lights and the lights hits the plant at the correct angle and suddenly a mysterious shadow of a nude woman appears…  creepy cool!
