Mysterious Caves Project

Scientists have been baffled by the appearance of a mysterious cave at West India Quay, London. It is believed that a light earthquake unearthed the cave which is estimated to be over 10 million years old, but scientists cannot explain the intense glow of green lights emitting from its depths.

By now, you should have guessed that  intro is nothing more than a fiction, with its sole purpose of making this optical illusion little more interesting. What you see below is a 3D Chalk Drawing, created by world-class pavement artist Edgar Müller, whose works we posted on many occasions before. If you remember Ice Age chalk drawing, or maybe that Lava Burst optical illusion – Edgar was responsible for both! His newest creation was exhibited on West India Quay’s Festival in London. It’s hard to imagine you could easily walk over this huge cave, and that concrete pavement is still lying beneath. It took 5 days for Edgar to finish this project. Below is the “Behind the Scenes” gallery, where you can see the work in progress.

  1. omg tht is tha most beautiful chalk drawings ive ever seen. the first one is so detailed and radiant. it must of took a long time to create tht piece of artwork.

  2. The first image of the cave pavement art you have posted is a digital draft, Edgar’s ‘shopped concept of what he was going to do. It’s not his actual pavement art. His website confirms this.

  3. Wow, even though you can clearly see the artist standing in the middle of it in one pic, my brain refuses to believe that it’s not actually 3D

  4. wish he’d do one near my house…I’d pretend to fall everytime I walk over it…just to see who i could trick…of course they’d have to be at the right angle…I wonder what he was thinking and indeed what is the green light?

  5. Great depth and dimentional scenes …Truely outstanding work…Does the photo seem fisheyed or is it just me ?

  6. Ok.
    This is definitly strange ( for me, Im just 11). I love optical illusions, but this one is the best so far! I think my sister would scream if she was just walking to the store with mom or something and found herself in midair in a cave; my cousin and I would just laugh ( after we freaked out). Amazing! Tres belle!

  7. i wonder if the picture still looks 3d if u were looking at it from different angles then the photo was shot.

  8. heh heh it looks like a scean in SPYRO THE ETERNAL NIGHT…I beat the game 4 times and im only ten ;)

  9. hahaha This is Fake!!! look at the buildings on the both images.they are the sames.XD and on the where is painting o which is on the first picture on the second one ??? XD ahahhaha This sucks

  10. Put a few people in the caves below. Make it look like they’re enjoying themselves down there. Maybe taking a dip in the water. :)

  11. All i can say is Edgar you are truly gifted…creating things which aren’t really there….thats one wonderful talent you got…people sometimes dream about stuff which only exists in their dreams…but you make the dreams come true….may you have all the enery to make more of these everyday of your life…a truly inspiring figure you are to the modern art world…keep going ….even sky shouldn’t be your limit……
