This figure has conflicting depth cues, so it becomes unstable as you look at it. Depending on which part looks closer at the moment, you should be able to see a chair-like figure, or a floating block.

Really interesting. I noticed that it just looked like a chair at first, but if you look at the top part where the rectangles are on the right, you see a floating cube. Nice, I gave it a full face because it was very interesting.

I love these! Actually I saw 3 things. A chair, a block, and a love seat where 2 people can sit. These illusions are really expanding my perception. Keep them coming

This is awesome!!! I saw a block to begin with, then I saw a chair. Now I can only see a chair...try as I might, I can't see the block anymore. Strange how that works, huh?
