In Hans Holbein’s famously inexplicable painting, “The Ambassadors,” a large anamorphic skull appears to lie across the floor at the feet of two dandified renaissance gentlemen. The skull appears in correct perspective only when the painting is seen from an acute angle looking diagonally down from the right-hand side of the painting (or diagonally up from the lower left-hand corner). I decided to make a latch-hooked anamorphic skull rug in order to display the skull image from the painting on the floor in real life, and to see if the image would change in and out of correct perspective as the viewer walks past it (it does!). You can follow the same process I used in this project to turn the image of your choice into a photorealistic latch-hooked rug.
