Gentleman Rabbit Optical Illusion

An interesting art installation was setup by mr. #Francis Tabary that depicts the same object from different angles. It all depends how you look at it – you may see the rabbit or a gentleman wearing a hat. The mirror helps in seeing the both simultaneously. I leave it up to you to realise how this illusion works. It’s relatively simple, so no hints this time.

  1. both images, the rabbit and the man in the mirror, are represented with a single line. The man in the mirror reflects the line which composes the rabbit… from a different point of view. Basically, what’s missing in this 2D picture is the third dimension, over which the line that represents the rabbit follows.

  2. It’s a rabbit looking at an egg, that has a picture of a man wearing a hat, painted on it. So says my six year old daughter. LOL

  3. I’m going to take a stab at it in that the wires aren’t confined to a 2D plane. The rabbit bends toward and away from us in such a way that the different angle we view it at through the mirror creates the man in the hat.

  4. I don’t get it. What’s suppost to happen? Or what should I see? , besides an egg with a man and a rabbit…

  5. It’s pretty easy: There’s only one wire outline. Viewed from the camera’s angle it looks like a rabbit, but viewed from the angle supplied by the mirror it looks like the gentleman with the hat. Pretty dam cool if you ask me (but no one did).
