A Somewhat Disturbing Beard

I ran across this image the other day and almost just scrolled right past it.  I was kind of wondering what the point of the picture of this man with a beard and glasses was.  As I was scrolling, however, a set of eyes caught my eye which caused me to do a double take.  […]

Vase Face by Gene Levine

Thanks to Gene Levine for sending over one of his latest 3D stereograms.  It incorporates the face/vase ambiguous optical illusion in addition to the hidden image located in the pattern below it.  Take a deep look inside the gray swirling pattern and see if you can get the hidden image to pop out at you. […]

Over the Moon by Rob Gonsalves

In this ambiguous painting by Rob Gonsalves, a young girl is having fun on a tree swing.  As she gets higher and higher, it seems that her feet might touch the moon.  Moving from left to right, can you see where the painting transitions from the girl swinging from a tree under the moonlight to […]

Upon closer inspection, you can also notice two different faces within the outline of the mask.  A woman (on the left) and a man (on the right) […]

Light Flurries by Rob Gonsalves

A man with a lantern emerges from a grouping of pine trees and approaches the edge of a lake.  As he looks down the coastline, the pine trees transform into skyscrapers in the night.  Can you tell where the pine trees end and the skyscrapers begin?  You have to wonder when Rob Gonsalves painted this […]

Midnight Walker by Chow Hon Lam

Is this clown on the tightrope walking upside down or right-side-up?  Without the placement of the moon, you might just assume that the black space in between the buildings is the ground.  But since the moon is there, it almost feels as though you are on the ground looking up toward the tops of the […]
