@wildbunny brought my attention to this great illusion.  The image below should rotate after a few seconds (if if doesn’t, click on the image and open it in a new window).

Like it?

  1. Is that really an illusion though? To keep eyes and mouth upside down while flipping the rest of the picture takes photo manipulation – to me that’s not an illusion.

    1. No, the entire picture flips… The weird thing is that you don’t see that the mouths and eyes are already flipped when the picture is upside down….

  2. The eyes and mouths are upside down the whole time, the illusion is that you only notice when they are the right way up.

  3. This is interesting. I’m autistic and the faces look wrong unrotated. Nonautistic people are wired to see faces and imagine intelligences everywhere (hence religion).

  4. This is interesting. I’m autistic and the faces look wrong unrotated. Nonautistic people are wired to see faces and to project intelligences everywhere (hence the weird but very common interpretation of religions).
