Amusing 3D art gallery

As far as we're concerned, 3D is dead. It had its moments - Avatar was good fun, wasn't it? - yet entertainment that requires glasses has proved about as popular as food that requires a gum shield.

But then we saw these images of a 3D art gallery at the Qingdao Olympics Museum of China. While not strictly 3D in the glasses-wearing-money-wasting sense of the term, the paintings really gain a context when punters pose with them, inviting reels of hilarity.

By the look of the painting's background, dinosaurs once roamed the lowlands of southern France.
