Optical Illusions 4

MARLENE
Can you find the portrait of Marlene's Dietrich? Mexican artist Octovio Ocampo created this charming scene of the famous 1940's film star.


ESCHER'S WATERFALL
Can water flow like this? No! If you follow the flow of the water, you will see that it flows downwards and into the dirt until it again reaches the furthest and lowest point, which is identical with its nearest and highest point.


UNLIKELY WINDOW
This still life of a man sitting on a window ledge by Belgian artist Jos De Mey incorporates impossible triangles. The man holding the cube is in homage to the man holding the impossible cube in M.C. Escher's "Belvedere".


ONE HEAD OR TWO?
Do you perceive one head or two profiles? This is a very nice example of an ambiguous illustration that "flip-flops" in meaning, giving either a single face partially obscured by the candlestick, or two faces in profile on either side of the candlestick. This is a variation on the vase illusion.


AN OLD OR A YOUNG WOMAN?
Can you find the profile of an old woman and a young woman? This well-known illusion dates back to the nineteenth century, when it first began to appear on puzzle trading cards.


THE FLOWERING OF LOVE
Can you find the lovers in the flowers? Look carefully at the petals of the rose; they form the outline of a kissing couple, or that of a single rose. Swiss artist Sandro Del Prete created this beautiful ambiguous illusion.
