Double Back Illusion

What do you see when you look at Bev Doolittle’s Double Back illusion? Most people tend to notice the giant bear prints leading away and off into the distance, or at least I did anyway. The strange thing is that I noticed the prints no problem, but somehow I missed the small bear off in the distance that was actually making the prints. You would think that would have been the most obvious of the illusion, but not for me.

Instead, I noticed the giant bear hidden amongst the trees close to the front of the illusion. When it comes to Bev Doolittle’s Double Back illusion, I had to do just what the piece of art implied, double back. It wasn’t until I looked at it another time that I actually found more behind the piece. What seemed so obvious and simple at first was far from it. Did you notice everything the first time around or did you have to take a second glance at it to take it all in? What do you think of the intricate detailing and beautiful scenery that makes up this portrait?
