Taking the Bait

Taking the Bait

This shimmery iridescent winged creature, with its unique natural beauty, is confronted with a sweet morsel. Despite its unfamiliarity with this strange manufactured worm, the bird is nonetheless tempted by the bait. Is it a trap? Most definitely.

Carl Leck is an Indianapolis-based painter and muralist.  His trompe-l’oeil (“fool the eye”) technique can be seen on numerous murals around town.

Taking the Bait was created through a partnership between Jiffy Lube of Indiana and the Arts Council
