Something interesting...if you go to Jake's profile, the Optical Illusions teasers have difficulty ratings (but one in his Favs doesn't)...Also, he gets around 800+ votes on each!!! **Except for the newest ones, of course...

Oct 14, 2006

Okay, irish, we get the point... I thought it was okay. Anyway... I have a question... It's probably kinda stupid and nit- picky, but maybe someone could help me out... I see both images, but when you focus on the man with the sax, what's the purpose of the woman's other eye, (the one that's disjointed from the man). I guess what I'm asking is, don't all the pieces of one part of the illusion have to serve a purpose with the second part of the illusion? (I'm not trying to put this one down, I'm genuinely asking) Sorry again if this's just stupid...

Apr 27, 2007

awesome!!! And there are not 2 different illusions in this but 4!!!

The first one i saw was a picture of a woman with a very crazy hairstyle.
Then i saw the man playing the sax.
Then after that i looked at it a while longer and saw and another woman and 1 of her eyes is not connected to shape.
And if you look at it upside down u see a chicken!!!!! lol

So there is a man playing a sax, two woman, and a chicken all in 1 optical illusion!!!

This is by far the best optical illusion i've ever seen, even if i've seen it millions of times!!!

For some reason, I just cannot get enough of this illusion! I personally saw the woman first, but it was fairly simple (in my case) to see the both.
dsheboAus
Jun 19, 2007

I saw the woman first. I thought the same thing about the woman's left eye "floating" in front of the man, but if you think of him using a huge pipe instead of a sax, then the "floating eye" could be smoke rising from the pipe. That's all I could think of anyway.

OK, but the man playing the sax doesn't totally work, because the second eye of the woman doesn't come into it and appears as a black smear totally aside from the silhouette.

Jun 10, 2010

I could see the man, but not the woman till I saw somebody's 'look at it upside-down' hint. Hehe, btw, it is easier to do the upside down trick if you push 'CTRL ATL (down arrow key)' assuming you use the windows opperating system. To get the image back to normal do the same combo, but with the up arrow key instead of the down.
