I hope you had a great time playing with our previous illusion, as I think it’s one of the best we’ve featured lately. Today I bring you this beautiful Peacock made by Cecelia Webber. Your assignment is to spot the illusion without me explaining any further. I will suppress myself from giving any clues, so no hints this time ;)

A Beautiful Peacock That Isnt

    That took me a while to see and I am still not sure I know what the feathers are made from. This is pretty amazing art.

    • Janet says:

      Once you realize those are not fruits it should fall into place.

    • Penguin says:

      The circular things in the feathers are people holding the legs with their arms. We are looking down at them.

    • KK says:

      It’s made by multiple body parts.
      Mainly an eagle view to see a human.
      Hands are the peacock’s crown and the feathers’ ends.
      An arm is the neck.
      The yellow/green are butts. :P

    • C. Blue says:

      I think the feathers are made from the same thing the neck is made from.

    • Aniruddha says:

      The head of peacock is made from the hand of the artist with paint work upon it. Great art…

    • Hypersapien says:

      cgimusic, the blue spots on the feathers are a person, sitting down, hugging their knees to their chest, seen from above.

      I’m not sure what the green parts are, but I assume the whole thing is people or parts of people.

    Body Paint + Photoshop.

    Enough Said.

    It is a hand… Easy…

  4. F Pathan says:

    Face of the peacock is painted hand.

  5. Karlos says:

    Hand and Human body?

  6. Chris says:

    Found it

  7. Imran Ansari says:

    Made using fruits.

  8. No One says:

    Blues are of an overview of a woman sitting with her legs folded into her chest with her arms about them. Head and neck are a blue hand and arm. Beak are a pair of crossed legs. The yellows are still questionable, but I can only guess hunched backs.

  9. AM1 says:

    The neck and head of the peacock is a painted hand- you can see the fingers forming the beak. Nice one.

  10. Grifoware says:

    Very nice, arm and people crunched

  11. Berek says:

    Definitely some photoshopping here, but it’s still cool.

  12. Vishh says:

    I got it but should i disclose it..

  13. Feathers made from fish bones!

  14. Steven says:

    The feathers are made of the same thing as everything else!

  15. Dave Swan says:

    Really? People, people, people! Come on now!

  16. Al Loehndorf says:

    It looks to me as if we are looking down on a woman sitting with her arms embracing her knees, made from a painted hand which forms the peacock head. Impressive illustration.

  17. FantaClaus says:

    OMG I SEE IT! They’re people! The blue things with the black middle are people, where the black is the hair. and the green stuff are arms. and the whole thing is made of people! and the light yellowy things that look like bread are backs, and the beak are legs as well, and the whole head + the beak is actually one person, and the neck is an arm and omg that’s amayyyyzing…

  18. Etherimos says:

    I’m pretty sure the neck and head of the ‘bird’ are actually an arm and hand and not a bird at all.

  19. Ed Hopkins says:

    It’s people! Soylent Peacock is made out of people. They’re making our art out of people. Next thing they’ll be breeding us as tiles for mosaics. You’ve gotta tell them. You’ve gotta tell them!

  20. bamh says:

    Simple!! It is a whole bunch of people as the body, the “dots” on the feathers, and the face of the bird and than the neck is an arm.

  21. mohammed says:

    the head and the neck are a hand of a man

  22. lalee says:

    The head of the peacock is a painted human hand !!

  23. lalee says:

    So are the feathers !!

  24. briebird the kid says:

    o is it lik hand art?

  25. jason says:

    there are apples and the face and beck is really a hand

  26. Win Machielse says:

    It’s a palmtree.

  27. tienuien says:

    Looks like another bodypaint job.

  28. David says:

    Images of people from specific angles and all put together to make this amazing image

  29. alexkandha says:

    it’s made from human limbs. head is made from hands, crescent is made from hands. tail is made from ass,feather more hands. :)

  30. Annie says:

    It’s not **** in the ***, is it ?

  31. Arabella says:

    The head is a hand and I’m not sure if the body is some type of fruit

  32. Linda Muse says:

    Oh!! I see it!!

  33. seve says:

    A lot of people on the picture!

  34. Anonymous says:

    LOL, you try so hard to not give clues, Vuldrak, but I still clicked the two shortcuts to the epic body paint items. The Spots are HANDS!

  35. Linda Bass says:

    The feathers are the same as the head and beak. Look closely. You’ll see. Painted bodies.

  36. Mark Maguire says:

    I see the female form for the beak, and the pattern on the feathers are overhead shots of a head, shoulders, arms and knees tucked up towards the chin. Plus a forearm for the neck of the Peacock. The body of the Peacock looks like a bunch of apples, but it also looks like the backs and shoulders of people with their heads tilted forward out of view. Other than that, I’ve got nothin’.

  37. Aneesa Lake says:

    The eyes of the feathers are human bodies, sitting up, holding their knees.

  38. Imagination says:

    Hi, it took me a while like cgimusic but I notice the the head and neck of the peacock is actually someone’s hand and arm.

  39. Annie says:

    It makes my head swim.

  40. spellingmisstake says:

    It is all in the eye!

  41. Janice says:

    A hand and part of the arm and I don’t know the rest help.

  42. AXEL says:

    HANDle with care :) i like body art

  43. Paul Johnson says:

    The head is an arm and hand, and r they apples behind?

  44. Ande says:

    Spoiler alert:
    The back end is made out of upside down pears.
    The neck is a human arm, head is a hand holding something to make the beak.
    The feathers….no idea.

  45. Xavier Kreiss says:

    Behind the bird : apples ? And the green part of the feathers might be leaves from a conifer ?

  46. Cleo Rhea says:

    I don’t know what i’m looking for :/

  47. pat wilson says:

    Think its a Christmas Tree with Woman bending over for ornaments,Lady laying in the eye of the peacock,Not sure about the blue, can’t make it out,but looks like to me base of the tree in blue, I see apples,and baby faces also.lol It’s a tough one. But good.

  48. Cliking says:

    Human body. Blue one – top angle. Neck is hand.

  49. GARY says:

    OK, out with it. I see Nuttin’.

  50. Debra says:

    The body looks like layered sliced pickles.

  51. rozziewoo says:

    wow! is that a pineapple?? fantastic whoever did this is very talented! x

  52. z2d4th says:

    hand paint pretending as peacock.

  53. Fred says:

    Are those apples behind the colored hand ?

  54. timbo says:

    I give up, what is it other than a peacock? Looks like it might be an arm with the thumb and forefinger touching to form an oval but what else?

  55. Lulu says:

    Its body art as tags suggest.
    The eye of the peacock head of a lady when looked from above.

  56. fgs says:

    I don’t get it?

  57. giova says:

    body painting!!amazing

  58. JC says:

    the answer can be seen through a zoom
    cool image

  59. LIL BIT says:

    I see fruit, and I think the green is pine. I give up? A fruit bird?

  60. erin8ball says:

    sooooo cool!

  61. Gryphon Hall says:

    Great illusion! Really got to hand it to you!

  62. Liz says:

    I can’t figure it out??? Is there anywhere to find out what the illusion is? I’m not sleeping at night, I can’t concentrate this is driving me crazy. . .

    I need more than a hint!!!

  63. Watcher says:

    If you visit the artists web site you can see that she does these with multiple images. Thus she photographs the shape then duplicates it to make the images she needs. The feathers are human arms and upper backs. The illusion is awesome but it is not just one sitting to make such a complex image.

  64. wesone says:

    It is made up of a photomontage of people. Lots of photoshop.

  65. Fran says:

    Took ages and originally I thought the peacock body was apples but no!! All the same “raw” material…..

  66. Oh it looks too hard! I could not still find the illusion. Can anybody please help?

  67. christppp says:

    Hand and Eyes~

  68. Kwang Taek says:

    What a gorgeous portrayal of the peacock. It’s the blues for me.

  69. Vincent says:

    You just gave a hint from the tags :P

  70. ThaSandoman says:

    Wow! Possibly the best of this type I’ve seen!
    Very hard to pick with all those lines… Need to see the “making of” to fully comprehend this.

  71. Rick M says:

    I can’t really see it, I would like a clue. The only thing I noticed was that the neck of the bird looks like someone’s arm, and the head is the hand; but it’s beak looks like a pair of crossed bare legs, on a much smaller scale. Cecilia has a website at http://ceceliawebber.com/

  72. Cainmak says:

    The peacock itself is either two hands connected together or a sitting woman seen from above.

  73. Rashaud says:

    It’s a forearm and hand painted to resemble a peacock in front of a backdrop.

  74. BriTam93 says:

    Her hand is the Peacock head..Awesome!!

  75. lol says:

    the face is a hand

  76. 69Dragons says:

    I think the main part of the head is a painted hand, and the main part of the each feather is pine bough. However, the resolution of the photo (if indeed it is a photo) is not high enough figure out what makes up the spots.

    Love it!

  77. Rik8266 says:

    I see lots of naked ladies!

  78. Matt says:

    Its made up of hands and a forearm. Very cool idea

  79. Carl Fuglein says:

    I am absolutely clueless.

  80. twoopy says:

    that’s a lot of people

  81. yams says:

    I was stuck looking at this for a whole day…and I finally got it! Pretty amazing. The round part of the feathers are a view from above…exact same thing as the head and beak, only different size and colours…

  82. MM says:

    The peacock head is a hand!! The beak is 2 fingers… although as cgimusic said, i’m not sure about the feathers…

  83. NN says:

    The eyes on the feathers are women shown from above. The women have their arms wrapped around their knees and you see the top of their black hair/head. The yellow body is the back of a body, you see the rounded/indented buttocks and torso of the body.

  84. suor de sapo says:

    The eye is an head, the beak crossed legs, and the long neck is an harm… Very poetic

  85. Kirksey says:

    You already told us it wasn’t a peacock lol. That was a hint.

Speak Your Mind

You can add some images too.
