Einsteins Face IllusionThis optical illusion requires you to watch amazing video I have added at the bottom of this article. The Hollow Face Illusion is probably one of the most amazing optical illusions I have come across. Grand Illusions has commissioned this particular version of the Hollow Face Illusion. The original head of Albert Einstein was created by the sculptor Bryan Parkes and the manufacturing process was managed by David Burder. This is a 1.5 times life size version of Albert Einstein’s face, since the illusion works best when the head is slightly larger than life size.

    Disney has been using this trick for years in their Haunted Mansion attraction. It’s always effective, but not anything new under the sun.

    Why is it that Einstein’s face has to be involved in so many optical illusions? One surely has to wonder. I do, but then, I am also a fan of Einstein. Cool in a smart way.

    They actually have these kinds of “sculptures” or “masks” at Disney World! While you line up on this ride (sorry, I don’t remember which one), you’ll walk through a hall full of these illusions. They frame them to make them look like pictures that follow you when you walk by them.

    really cool, in my opinion. Thanks!

  43. I Am Someone says:

    The Dragon one is different, because this one is made by a hollow bla bla bla. The dragon one is made in a different way.
