TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- A transformer box in Sihu Township of western Taiwan's Yunlin County has been painted to look like the inside of a claw machine.

In the 3D painting, photos which have been uploaded to the Taiwanese Facebook group Baoyuan Commune (爆怨公社), the artist appears to operate a handle to guide an arcade claw in grabbing a ​massive Karasumi (烏魚子), or dried mullet roe. On one side a handle has been painted to look like the key to an old fashioned door lock, while the back shows a Karasumi seeming to squirt out a vent.

Netizens on Baoyuan Commune were impressed with the realism of the 3-D painting:

"There's a god, quickly pray."

"Too creative."

"So strong, where's the address, I want to go and make a pilgrimage."

"I'm really enjoying your work very much, your paining has also brought a lot of attention to my grandmother's neighborhood. I really like Master Tseng's paintings very much."

In 2016, a transformer box was spotted in Tainan painted to look like a weathered wooden bookcase.
