Invasion of the giant spiders:

Seattle ‘under attack’ from creatures painted on to roofs of buildings

These stunning 3D paintings of harvestmen arachnids - which are not technically spiders - are the creation of artist Marlin Peterson

It’s the stuff of nightmares for arachnophobes: Giant eight-legged creatures, crawling over the rooftop of a building, seemingly waiting to pounce on their next victim. But this is no arachnid invasion. It’s an optical illusion so realistic it’s enough to make the bravest soul’s skin crawl. These images painted on top of a warehouse in Seattle of harvestman arachnids – otherwise known as a Daddy Long Legs – seemingly spring to life when viewed from a particular angle.
