Can you find 9 people in this picture below? This is exactly what Kirsten Hendricks asked us. I found only eight, but if you can find all of them, be sure to post it in comments! This is what Kirsten wrote: “There is supposed to be nine hidden people. Some are just faces. I can only say for sure eight. Help if you can!”

  • Teddy Osadchuk

    This was actually pretty easy, took me about 30 seconds

    1. The obvious, old man with beard right in the middle of the photo
    2. Woman’s face above the column on the right
    3. The old man with a hat inside the big picture of the bearded old face
    4. The woman inside the bearded old face
    5. The baby that the woman is holding
    6. The face right above the left column with the bird post making up the forehead and nose
    7. The face right above #5, nose and forehead ade up of bird’s chest outline
    8. The face right underneath the bird’s tail on the left
    9. Side view of a face right bellow a bird’s tail on the left

    See, that was easy!!! :)

  • niki

    I found five people (and one dog)

  • Syc

    I found eight easily, then took a bird’s eye view and found the ninth…. Good hunting! :)

  • mr.deepman

    there are four faces in the upper right corner, with the black bird in the middle. Behind the bird are two of them. One face is seen from the front, and the second is a profile using one of the fisrt face’s eye and and the pole the bird is standing on. in front of the bird are two faces one on top of the other, one using the pole, and the other the bird (with another bird in the distance to make an eye) to make two profiles…

    i guess the one your missing is one of those… cause it makes nine in my count.


  • Jeremy

    does the babe the women in the picture count? if so there is 8 ppl

  • Jeremy

    -the mom
    -the baby
    -the old man w/ the cane
    -the huge head
    -the female on the right
    -four faces on the left (look very hard) (the crow and the crow in the distance make a face)

  • alejandro

  • travis

  • Crystal

    Does the baby in the woman’s arms count ?

  • Faye

    I found 9 people!

  • Darb

    there’s four in the upper left corner. focusing your attention on the upper left and moving from the bottom left, counterclockwise: there’s a face head on; right profile; left profile; and right above it, antoher left profile (someone with a beard).

    there’s a face in the upper rightish in profile.

    there’s the big head.

    the old man with a cane.

    the mother.

    and her baby.

  • Paul

    The large head has 5 (the head itself, the woman and her baby that form the ear, and the eye and nose form 2 people looking in opposite directions). To the left of the pillar with the bird on top is one face, to the right is 2, one on top of each other. On the other side of the arch is a face looking away (the ninth)

  • hozzy72

    this was a pretty good one, but i found all 9 pretty quickly

  • nk

    three in the left corner;
    1 at the left of the bird and
    2 at the right of the bird:
    at the right theres another bird if you look good thats an eye.

    but a bit lower of that you’ll see another face pressing against the
    big “stick”, it also has hair made from grass.
    thats three already, let go furhter with four and five;
    the fourth one is at the upper right corner which is also kissing number five if you look good you’ll see it.(or is standing there as a shadow of the fifth face.)

    6: is the women in the dress
    7: is the baby that woman is holding
    8: is the guy with the hat standing next to the women

    and at last.
    9: the big picture of an old man that is formed by both the man with the hat and the

  • Spença

    Does the baby in the woman’s arm count as a person? ‘Cause in that case I found all 9.

  • Carey

    I see 8 humans…and one canine.



  • Jock.

    Here is what I find…

    1. Old guy with baldy head
    2. Old guy with cane
    3. Lady with orange Shawl
    4. Face looking right at you (at birds tail)
    5. Face looking right (using the bishop chess piece)
    6. Face looking left (using the bishop chess piece)
    7. Face just above (using a bird in the distance as an eye)
    8. Face looking right on the right hand side (using the little bit of the bishop chess piecece)
    9. Probably the one most people have trouble finding is the baby in the ladies arms!

  • kyle

    the ninth is the actual picture!!! lol

  • kyle

    the ninth is the whole picture!!!

  • big red

    i can only find 7

  • [M]ilt

    well.. if the baby with the lady counts as 1 face, then I’ve got 9. else it’s 8 :P

    contact me by tagging! :P hehe

  • Jocelyn

    I guess I’m not quite as observant. I only found five:(

  • PhoenixHiker

    The last one I found (#9) is a second face where the black bird forms the nose and brow.

  • isaac segura

    the ninth may be the kid in the arms

  • PT

    1. Big main guy, whose bald head is formed by the arch, and whose hand is formed by the dog.
    2 and 3. Mother and child formed by the ear of the ‘main guy’.
    4. Bearded old man in wide-brimmed hat, leaning on a stick, looking out of picture. His right elbow is the ‘main guy”s nose and his upper face is the upper eyelid of the ‘main guy’.
    5. Old lady in cap, looking to our left. Her face is the eyeball of the ‘main guy’, her cap is the face of the bearded old man in the hat, her ruff is the bag beneath the eye of the ‘main guy’, her face and ruff form the beard of the bearded old man in the hat.
    6. Top right of frame – young woman’s profile looking right.
    7, 8 and 9. Top left of frame. There are two profiles, looking left and right, formed by the carved pillar on which the bird is standing. And there is a full-frontal face to the left of those two, whose left eye forms the eye of one of the profiles.

  • td3k

    I think I have found all 9. Here’s where they are (easiest to hardest)

    1. The old bald man with hand on chest
    2. The old man standing with hat (composes ear and nose of bald man)
    3. The lady standing in long dress
    4. The baby in the ladies arms
    5. In upper right, profile of a face looking right located just above column and to the right of the arch
    6 & 7. In upper left there are four faces, 2 on each side of the spire with the bird on top. To the right of the bird you can find 2 face profiles looking to the left stacked on top of each other.
    8 & 9. To the left of the bird you can find 2 more faces superimposed on top of each other – one face is looking straight at you while the other face borrows the left eye to form a profile looking to the right.

  • tobi

    if you count the baby in the arms of her mother, there are 10!

  • lily

  • fudge munkey

    The hand of the main face is a dog, nice illusion

  • mike

    hi there!

    yes im pretty sure i can see 9. im not sure which one you missing out but i think its the face at the top teft corner. there are actually three faces, the flying crow to the right makes the eye.

    im not sure if you spotted that one but for me it was the hardest one to find.

  • Gro-G

    Four people in the top left corner, one in the right left corner and four in the middle.

  • Erwin

    Hi Everybody :)
    4 : A big head containing an old man and a woman holding a baby
    3 : left upper corner, two faces, and you can see the third from a bird sculpture (the small bird is an eye)
    2 : right side – you can see a womans face kissing someone, I think that the original picture don’t have a border so you can see it better.

    Tell me if I’m wrong :)

  • Erwin Mackovic


    4 : A big head containing an old man and a woman holding a baby.
    3 : On the left side where the bird sculture is there’s a face on the left and the right side, and also the sculture is with a little bird as an eye is one face.
    2 : On the right side there’s a woman’s face and it seems like she is kissed by someone, but I’m not sure about that ( I enlarged the picture and I think that there is someone) :)

    or a dog if that counts something :)

  • maddy & ruby

    We have found all 9!! if the baby counts as one,
    1- the old mans head
    2&3- the old mans ear is a wonam and child
    4- the front of the old mans face makes a man with a hat on
    5- above the right hand piller there is a face
    6&7- above the left hand piller a profile of a face is made by the stone work the bird is sitting on, then the bird and the flying bird in the background(eye) make a profile
    8&9- on the otherside of the stone work there is a profile of a face and a womans head face on.

  • josu

    Well done everybody.

    To those who have seen nine, I have actually seen 12.

    There are THREE more that no one seems to have seen.

    > Top left corner. two faces disguised as clouds, they apperar to be kissing.

    > Top right corner. one partially disfigured face disguised amongst the clouds. which actually, if you look harder can see the whole body of an infant.

    anyone can see others

  • Bink

    I found ’em! That was really fun. I made a little guide, its just a picture so if you still can’t find them. here you go!


  • Fernando

    Ooops, I found 10 :(

  • Kyle

    I saw eleven before josu pointe out the twelth, this was a good one and got me off the hook from working for a little bt:)

  • Tim

    Do you really want obscure? Turn photo 90 degrees counter clockwise. Look at the cobblestone area. Half of a face with eye closed. The dog’s legs are the fingers of a hand along side of the cheek as if resting. That makes thirteen!

  • dan

    if everybody is counting the baby as a figure, there are actully ten faces in this painting the tenth face is in the upper left handside just below the corner

  • Lara

    Not for nothing, but a bigger, clearer image would help…
    Some of these are so small…

  • Mark

    Anyone see a face in the area to the left of the left column? Two dark splotches make eyes, the next lower splotch is the mustache. White splotches make the collar.


    i c only 8 people and idk if the crows make up a face or not…..kinda wierd…………this is hard….


    This is kinda Strange realy cool though this is the best mirrage yet ……this is hard..but cool…..idk if the crows make up a face or r they just there…..???? HMMMMM

  • Lynn

    Believe it or not, it took me a second glance to see the big old man’s face. I could only see the two people inside the face at first!

  • four-bees@sbcglobal.net

    I played with this one a lot, lightened it, altered colors and shading. It is amazing-if I count all the faces I can see(not just human), I come up with at least 26!!!!!
    But the nine human faces are pretty easy to find. In my counting I had 10. So maybe the big face isn’t supposed to be considered one of the ‘hidden’ faces. I didn’t include the baby as he/she/it really has no facial features.

  • Elisha

    This is really cool!!

  • bob

    Iwas able to find nine of them all. It might take a while, but you can find some inside other faces.

  • Penny

    I found 9 people, the last was the baby in the young lady’s arms! WooHoo!

  • Anonymous

    i found the nine people before getting here but i had to see if the other found the same as me …i wasn’t sure if the baby counted,

    i also found the 2 other people kissing in the cloud,that josu talked but i don’t think it’s there intentionaly ( intentionellement ), it’s only because we think too much or have too much imagination….like when you look a the cloud and see a dinosaur or something and you the only one who see it( the real cloud, not the picture )

    that why i had to see if people had same answer than me , i wasn’t sure too if the one you see in front behind the crow counted

  • Anonymous

    I am the only one that found a 10th face? The last one is small. It is right below the old man’s butt. It’s an outline of a face looking to the right. It is every bit as good as that one with the bird making up the forehead and nose.

    There are 10 if you count the baby…but you can “imagine” lots of partial faces in the clouds. Also, the dog is part of the large man…the cobblestones are part of his jacket and the dog is part of his hand clutching the jacket.

    not sure if its a face..

    bottom right column, right side. small face of an old man(?) facing right… its pressed against the side of the picture.

  • Joe

    Since there are clearly an awful lot of “mentally challenged” people out there, here’s a little clarification to help:

    – a dog is not a person, so it doesn’t count

    – a baby is a person, so it counts

    – there are exactly and only 9 PEOPLE in this picture. The “extras” some try to insist are there are just their imaginations trying to concoct a person’s face even though it isn’t there.

    – 1 + 1 = 2

    That last one isn’t really relevant, but judging by some of the responses, I figured some of you might be having a hard time with math as well.
