Optical Illusions Pictures

Optical illusions (sometimes called also visual illusions) are images perceived in a manner that differs from objective reality. What the human eye sees is interpreted by the brain in a way that contradicts physical measurement of the source image. You can find several types of optical illusions on this site:

cognitive illusions - whenever assumptions about the world lead to false perception (eg. ambiguous pictures, depth/motion/color perception or impossible objects) afterimages - effects on the eyes or brain of excessive stimulation of brightness, tilt, color, movement, etc. (eg. grid illusions)

Optical Illusions (Ambiguity Pictures)


Ambiguous images are optical illusions which exploit similarities between two or more distinct images. Sometimes they are called reversal images, puzzle images and perceptual rivalry. This is definitely one of the best-known optical illusions of all times! What do you see at first glance - an old woman or a young miss? They are both there!

Similar theme was used on a German postcard from 19th century.

A similar example of ambiguous visual illusions - father and son.

Whole family mind teaser - father with mother and daughter (by G. H. Fischer).

A landscape and the face of a bearded man.

Profile of Salvador Dali and a strange woman.

An old couple - see profiles of faces - is remembering the times when they were young and full of life - see the sitting characters ("Forever Always" by Octavio Ocampo)

At first sight, what do you see? Do not focus on one region, now look again. You may be surprised (by Joseph Jastrow).

Rabbit and duck one more time.

Swan and squirrel ambiguous image (by G. H. Fischer).

This one is interesting. Children will probably see a group of playing dolphins. But adults see usually something else. It's called Message of Love from the Dolphins (by Sandro Dragon Slayer" (by Sandro Del-Prete).

Most of the people see a donkey first, but if you look closer you'll find a seal, with its flippers where the donkey's ears are!

Is that a polar bear or a seal on the optical illusion picture below?
