This profile looks “normal” – at first… However images below (scroll down this this page to see them) show that it is just half of the frontal portrait…
That’s the magic of optical illusions…you think you see something but in reality it is something else. Or, what you are looking at is actually something morphing into something else, or not what it looks like at all!
The Hollow-Face illusion (also known as Hollow-Mask illusion) is an optical illusion in which the perception of a concave mask of a face appears as a normal convex face. In the above example you can see face of Albert Einstein.
The Spinning Dancer is a kinetic, bistable optical illusion resembling a pirouetting female dancer. Some observers initially see the figure as spinning clockwise and some counterclockwise. Additionally, some may see the figure suddenly spin in the opposite direction. The illusion derives from an inherent ambiguity from the lack of visual cues for depth.
The “illusion” is that this is just a picture of coffee beans; but it is not. Can you find a man’s face among the beans? Some say that if you find the man in 3 seconds or less, the right half of your brain may be more well developed than most. (hint: look for a coffeebean size face)
Can you see a famous celebrity in the image above (hint: “restore down” browser and move this image sideways to see it).
Can you find lovers in this Astronomy photo?

In black you can read the word GOOD; but the word EVIL also appears in white letters inside each black letter.
BTW, when spelled backwards: LIVE D becomes DEVIL, and DOG becomes GOD.
