Mar Marin Leal, ‘Abre Los Ojos’, 2014, DETOUR Gallery

this self-portrait of Spanish artist Mar Marin Leal is so realistic it is often mistaken for a photograph. Each individual eyelash and eyebrow hair are carefully painted around her big doe eyes. The bottom half of her face is covered with a tasseled white hood, and a single braid wraps around her forehead.
