Can You Recognize Her?Few years ago I’ve shared a gallery consisted of pixelated photos. It demonstrated a remarkable ability us intelligent creatures have, ability to recognize faces even when they are obscured in one way or another. I recommend you read that article first before you continue with today’s “illusion”.

Our Facebook channel became very popular lately  (over 50,000 fans), and one of the things that makes me super-happy is the rising trend where people started being more proactive and began sharing their own optical illusions and findings! One such submission was done by Edgar who shared the picture you see on your right ->

Isn’t it amazing how we can all recognize this painting, even when the information has been reduced to minimum. On the other hand, it greatly helps that the paining in question is globally famous one. BTW, try squinting your eyes in order to strengthen the effect ;D

    Amazingly easy! (Mona Lisa)

    Bloody hell, I can!

    Then again, working on the presumption that it a very famous she, narrows greatly down the search space.

      Poppycock… even without the the description, the image leapt off the page…

      Unmistakeable pattern.

      Live all these illusions! Thank you.

    This has to be the “easiest” optical illusion ever. By far. (Or at least… For me it is :)

  5. wow says:

    Cool illusion. It is so obvious who it is when you can see her. It may not show her in full detail, but still it is simple to figuire out who she is.

  6. If only you had taken the trouble to rename the image. By the time i tried clicking to make it bigger, i knew what it was. :(

  13. Mike says:

      It seems like there are lots of illusions featuring the Mona Lisa but there’s actually just one. It’s an illusion!

  18. Dani says:

    I wonder how well it would work if it was only in black-and-white?

  19. meandu says:

  20. Weebo says:

  21. Pure Guess says:

    Marie Osmond?

  22. Landy says:

    Isn’t the human brain an amazing thing?

  23. john says:

    Amazing… For me it was her hands, folded in her lap, that gave me the recognition… “Globally famous” is putting it mildly…

  24. Dave says:

    Pretty neat!

    I think I can as well.

  25. Don In Alabama says:

    “On the other hand, it greatly helps that the paining in question is globally famous one.”

    Yeah, I agree. I always thought the _painting_ was a bit painful to look at :P.

    Your missing a “t” in paining.

  41. CJ says:

    Oh my gosh its Mark Harmon!

  42. Albert says:

    The fact that it is so easy to see is the illusion itself

  43. eee efff geee says:


  44. Ben says:

    Mona Lisa, by seeing those shades of colors you can create a image of M.L. in your brain by imagination, you brain can “fill in” those blank areas in the picture automatically, pretty cool.

  45. Maxine says:

    I knew that it was Mona Lisa before anyone else knew it.
