  1. Ken Lord says:

    Before I read the description, I thought the illusion was the small cow body on the right appearing to connect to the big head in the foreground

    The only thing that could have possibly made it better would be to have the cows eyes align with where the people eyes should be. Damn you stochasticity!

    Anyone sees coala bear on the right cow? The white one with black ears, black eye, black nose and open mouth?

    The illusion looks cow-nterfeit to me.

  12. Anonymosity says:

    @lehcyfer — It took me a while to see your bear. It looks more like a giant panda head to me. The hard part was realizing that the open mouth is formed by the belly and left leg of the cow.

    It appears to be photoshopped, from a contest at Worth1000.com.

    A TinEye search brings up many matches, including what appears to be the unretouched version:
