Here Are Some Optical Illusions

(sent to me by Anna Shtrom, originator unknown)

Old Woman...Or Young Girl?

Hint: the old woman's nose is the young girl's nose and chin

Man Playing Horn... Or Woman Silhouette?

Woman In Vanity... Or Skull?

Hint: move farther a bit from the screen and blink to see the skull or the woman (looking at the mirror)

Two Faces... Or One?

A Rabbit.... Or A Duck?

Hint: the duck is looking left, the rabbit is looking right

A Face Of A Native American... Or An Eskimo?

Is The Book Looking Towards You… Or Away From You?

This one is a bit different - not even an illusion per se.

Try to pronounce the COLOR, not the word - and get your brain confused ;-)

For more illusions see - a very nice site in Russian.

The Phsychology Department of the Moscow State University hosts another terrific site with lots of great illusions.
