Arne Alert: A Lovecraftian French Op-Art

Arne, how DO you find these things? At Ectoplasmosis (click) :

The French adore both H. P. Lovecraft and headache-inducing optical-illusion artwork. Here, we see those two elements colliding in a poster for a French exhibition of artwork inspired by the various story ideas that HPL scribbled down over the years in his “Commonplace Book.”
Now, one would think an op-art Cthulhu would be a lot more appropriate than just a plain ol’ skull, right? But I dare you to stare at this thing for more than a minute without it opening a gateway to unknown, eldritch dimensions of space and time that will suck your mind into its whirling depths of labyrinthine madness.
