PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Ticket holders for tomorrow night’s Phillies-Braves game at Citizens Bank Park will be able to interact with a new, temporary display inside the ballpark — an eerie, 3-D drawing that features the Phillie Phanatic.

The 10′ by 22′ image was drawn on the pavement inside the left field entrance gate by Joe Hill, a street artist with Wasabi 3-D in London.  He created the piece for the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation and the Philadelphia Phillies.

“This looks like the pavement has been ripped away and you are looking down into the Phillies stadium with the Phanatic balancing on top of a sign,” Hill describes.  “And you can balance on top of the Phanatic.  So you have this quite cool — I hope cool! — illusion.”

It will remain in place for the Phillies’ regular season.   A professional photographer will be on hand for each home game.  It’s free and you’ll be able to access the photos at facebook.com/visitphilly.
