Russian artist Svetlana Petrova has always had the habit of taking photos of her cat, Zarathustra, in funny poses. But she decided not to keep the images of her pet to herself and gave the fun pictures a new purpose: using computer editing, she inserted the cat into famous paintings.
Zarathustra’s “intrusions” were so successful that the images were printed on posters, calendars, and even clothes. The edits use artwork that range from paintings made thousands of years ago, to very famous ones (such as Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa) and more contemporary ones.
