This is a unique surrealism portrait, which takes a classical art portrait but replaces the subject's face with a strange, glowing orange orb.
We love artists that take a fresh look at traditional styles of art, play around with them and create something new and rather wonderful.
The Orb of Pleasure is by artist Kirin Young who experiments with Renaissance portraiture. He encourages us to consider whether a portrait is still a portrait if it doesn't feature a face.
In this surreal wall canvas, an unearthly and mysterious orange-white glow obscures the subject's head. It leads us to ask a lot of questions: What does the woman behind the orb look like? What is this strange glow? Is it friendly or malevolent?
Either way, there's no doubt that this surreal portrait has a hypnotic effect. With many paintings, the eyes are said to follow you around the room - well, that won't be happening here! Instead, that eerie glow keeps drawing your attention back to the canvas.
