Another classic impossible object that I could not resist trying to render.

Technical Details and Credits

This image has been rendered using the POVRay raytracer. No post-processing has taken place on the image to make the illusion work; this is the 3D scene as it is rendered by the raytracer.

The grass is based on a texture created by Rune S. Johansen [link]

22 Aug: Various minor changes to shadows and lighting in response to comments received elsewhere
13 Sep: Uploaded a new, improved version of this image. See [link]

A nearly photorealistic devil's pitchfork! Awesome work. (I like this colorful version better. It has more contrast and intrigue.)

Thanks! (Oh, and the fact that you prefer this version in favour of the "improved" one goes to show that you can't please everyone, at least not with a single image ;-))
