M.C. Escher "Dewdrop" 1948. The artwork approaches photo-realism. It is eye-catching. It seems simple, but the details are extremely intricate.
Eye drawing by Unknown in the style of Maurits Cornelis Escher (the extended note on post was interesting re the style differences between Escher & the actual artist)

Reptiles - 1943
