Check out this portrait of Abe Lincoln. It appears there’s nothing strange going on, but if you observe it more closely, you will notice that every part of his head represents something. For example: top of his head and hair are in shape of a clown… Can you spot other simmilarities? There should be seven I think, but don’t take me for granted.

    His left eye looks like an upside-down snail, and the white patch below his right eye looks like a little mouse or something. Now they’re all popping out – but I’ll leave the rest to others.

  2. Kristin says:

    The left-hand side of his neck looks like a wolf or a dog’s profile

  3. The one who must not be named says:

    His neck on one spot looks like a llama

  4. JOEJOE says:

    The bottom of his nose and mouth looks like a bird type thing. It’s facing right and it’s black. Does nayone else see this?

    Here is what I see:

    His hair is a bent-over clown (black). There is a human face looking up on his forehead (white). Right eye is an upside-down snail (black). Left cheek is a sideways raccoon (white). Shoulder is a dog or bear facing downward (black). Neck is a llama (white).

    I am sure there are more (especially around the mouth) but I can’t spot them.

    • MM says:

      Maybe the shoulder is an alpha dog, the lead dog/wolf of the pack. maybe it means he’s a leader?

    You have the best collection of optical illusions, however, I can’t seem to locate where the correct answers are provided. Could someone please point me to the answers? Thanks in advance

    The person pouring out water probably shouldn’t be there but someone’s imagination. Well I can see it but i don’t think the person who created it wanted to make it be a person pouring out water

    Well, for me this illusion is like the “shapes of clouds” game. You’ll see what you want to see, and more if you try to actually see something…
