Duck Rabbit Illusion

Ambiguous 21 October 2020 No Comments Yet - Share Your Thoughts

I just searched through the archives, and I cannot believe that the famous duck rabbit optical illusion has not been featured in the past. You’ve probably already seen this image, but it is worth another look because of its powerful simplicity.

Do you see a duck or a rabbit? Can you find both? The animal that you first see when you view this illusion may be a reflection of your own personality.

Optical Illusion Wallpaper

Trompe L'oeil 21 October 2020 No Comments Yet - Share Your Thoughts

People have used wallpaper to decorate their walls forever. One clever way to make a small space memorable (and perhaps shocking the first time someone enters the room) is to utilize a wallpaper mural. In the example below, a mural has been placed on the back wall of a bathroom. It makes it appear as if the bathroom leads out onto a dock over a body of water.

Cowboy Optical Illusion

Ambiguous, Hidden Objects 21 October 2020 No Comments Yet - Share Your Thoughts

Here is a very interesting optical illusion. Look at the abstract black and white image below. Can you figure out what it is supposed to be?

What do you see? When I first looked at this, like many others, I was very confused. It appears to be some sort of insect drawn with a black marker. Some people have described it as looking like a lobster or some other crustacean (a shrimp, perhaps?).

Would you be surprised to see cowboy’s face in this image? Now that you know what to look for, have another look. Can you see it?

Ponzo Illusion

Estimation 20 October 2020 No Comments Yet - Share Your Thoughts

This geometric optical illusion from the early 1900s is called the Ponzo illusion – named after Mario Ponzo, who was the first to demonstrate this effect.

The illusion uses linear perspective to confuse the brain into thinking that two lines are of different lengths. In the image below, the red line at the top of the figure appears to be longer than the red line at the bottom.

This phenomenon is still used by optical illusion artists today to trick the eye and deceive the mind.

Cow Optical Illusion

Ambiguous 20 October 2020 No Comments Yet - Share Your Thoughts

Take a glance at the black and white optical illusion below. What is the first thing that you see?

This cow optical illusion is an ambiguous image. Depending on how you look at it, you can see two different scenes in the same space. Do you see the cow feeding on grass while looking at you or do you see two animals feeding on grass while facing each other?

The official title of this work is Two Indian Buffaloes / A Cow Grazing. It was created by Arvind Narale who specializes in pen and ink drawings that explore multiple meaningful images hidden in one space.
