So yo’ve managed to spot the hidden coffee-bean man, and you think you’re special? Let’s see if you can repeat the task with the “hidden face of the woods”. If you manage to complete this much harder task, then you truly deserve recognition ;D Happy hunting! P.S. When you find it, don’t tell – instead rate the illusion accordingly, and don’t forget to share with your friends!

Hidden Face of The Woods Illusion

    This was nice! Sounds like stereograms….

    • Karen says:

      Hmm. I found 4 faces. One looks more like a tribal mask, the second one is looking out at me. The third one seems to be screaming and the fourth one is sort of incomplete but appears to be grimacing. Of course the artist intended the second one…but I wonder if the artist realized there were three more faces that manifested in the painting?

  2. Waco says:

    I’d rate this a 9.9 as I had to come back several times before it jumped out at me. Would have given a 10 if I had to have help. Good one.

    • Ben says:

      Took me a few times coming back to and I finally found it after finding the coffee bean face one.

  3. KJ says:

    I was expecting to have to stare at it for a minute before finding it, but I found it within the first 30 seconds. Kinda spooked me a little when i first spotted it. LoL.

  4. Saeed Yaqoob says:

    woww!! really nice illusion.. the face is exactly at the right side of the picture, 2 inches up from the bottom.. hidden behind those green follen leafs.

  5. qwertzman says:

    oaky found it, was really just like the coffee beans.

  6. Ruud says:

    Love these hidden face pictures. I found the face surprisingly fast in contrast with the bakedbean man. Well hidden but after you’ve found the face it keeps jumping out of the picture. Keep up the good job!

  7. Micah says:

    That was easier than the beans, I won’t tell exactly but look towards the right of the photo.

    • glittergirl says:

      i can never find these things, but i took ur advice and i found it!!!!!!! thanx
      its kinda creepy!!!!!!! :/

  8. z2d4th says:

    why i cannot find?

  9. Ken says:

    I think I found it. Took about a minute.

  10. William says:

    Clever. reminds me of Peeta in The Hunger Games :)

  11. Spotte says:

    That is utterly terrifying when you find him. Only took me about 30 seconds, but I was looking for the rest of him as well.

  12. owen says:

    i found it!!took me 30 seconds

  13. Funz says:

    Creepy when you realize he’s been staring at you all the time :D

  14. Praybeyt says:

    see it. at the right.

  15. Jerry Rosie says:

    I see one, but it is so small that I’m not sure if it is the correct one.

  16. Imran Ansari says:

    Got it easily… luckily

  17. Nuts says:

    Yes! It’s at bottom right corner.

  18. Julia says:

    nope… i don’t see it…

  19. Julia says:

    wait wait wait, yes i do!

  20. S.G.TAYLOR says:


  21. Cheddar says:

    Found it, scared me!

  22. Dan says:

    And the cows are only a 4

  23. kevino says:

    I can also see a hidden bear!

  24. itsdave says:

    Good one, took about 35 sec. just wondering if there is only one as I can see several possible maybe’s

  25. Ko says:

    What was hard about that??? Found it in under three seconds. I mean he’s staring right at you.

  26. Tulex says:

    OK, I see the obvious one that is pointed out, but there is also a larger transparent one floating in the air.

  27. spelling corrector says:

    ahhhhhhhhhh that scared the living daylights out off me

  28. Matthew Brown says:


  29. h says:

    where is it

  30. Seeker says:

    took me 3 seconds

  31. Fernando says:

    With zoom it got preatty easy. 7,5. though it was frightening

  32. larry says:


  33. leperchaun says:

    Dude that scared the crap out of me!! took me about a minute before seeing him.

  34. Thunder-Rose says:

    Tehe! KJ and Cheddar have it right. When you do find it, it does kinda spook you and once you do find it, you’ll have a difficult time in TRYING to enjoy the rest of the pic! (cuz your eyes will have a tendancy to look into the eyes of the “hidden” face) Just my opinion. ENJOY! (now for my “illusion”,….is to have a flippin keyboard that actually CORRECTLY WORKS instead of having to backspace a bazilion times to get the keys to function!) Anyways, ENJOY! ‘n PeAcE! :)

  35. Flatbastard says:

    I tool some time, but I actually found two hidden faces…

  36. CNFacesEverywhere says:

    Is that a face or a discarded severed head???

  37. CHRYSTAL says:


  38. Trisha says:

    Found a total of 13 I think there is more

  39. Cindy says:

    I see 2 faces I think. One is very small I don’t think that it’s the correct face, the other one I see is a little broken up. Am I close or looking in the wrong spot.

  40. Sorbla says:

    Someone more besides me have seen the face of a cat-like superhero, apart of the man face?

  41. Cindy says:

    I see 2 faces I think. One is very small I don’t think that it’s the correct face, the other one I see is a little broken up. Am I close or looking in the wrong spot. I FOUND IT. LOL. bUT SERIOUSLY, there is 3 faces in that shot. 2 animated, 1 live face

  42. Terri says:

    I think I see two faces! There is a tree above the leaves that has a lump formation that also looks like a face.

  43. Peter says:

    I suspect that if I had this hanging on my wall, I might take years to spot it unless someone told me he was there! Very nice.

  44. mimi says:

    wow I just couldnt find him. Someone posted look to the right and there he was. This one good

  45. GenCat says:

    Oh GOD! found it.

  46. nitrosonic says:

    Anyone else see another “face” in the pile of rocks on the left, Looks kinda like the Thing.

  47. Mosthated says:


  48. jo says:

    Ahhhhhhhhhh…disapointment…i was like ‘ok here we go, get ready for spendin like 5 min’…after like 30s i was like ‘just found it, ok this is it?’…i though it would be alot harder…not very good.

  49. Timothy Collins says:

    It is Jack Skellington sort of looking? If so I think I found it…

  50. Steve says:

    Far right, about a quarter of the way up from the bottom. He has eyes and a mouth.
    Great picture

  51. Brigette says:

    Is there just a face or whole body? I am not seeing anything. *sigh*

  52. Jerry Rosie says:


  53. Jerry Rosie says:

    OK Now I see the one on the right but these another faced in the middle of the pile of rocks

  54. Scott says:

    I’ve found four faces so far, but probably none of them are the one being talked about. I’ll probably have to be one of the “I’ll find it when I come back to it” people!

  55. nrslori says:

    couldn’t see it at first. The I put my glasses on and saw it in a second! I think it’s the expression on his face that makes it so eerie.

  56. Alysha says:

    when i was looking at the comments some guy named micah said it was at the right and i looked at the right and i found it and its kinda scary

  57. Patti says:

    Wow, better than the coffee beans. Now it sticks out everytime I see it. Creepy, too.

  58. charlie says:

    Bottom right, look for the green

  59. Michael says:

    I found it i thought at first it was the small face on left but i was definitely wrong lol.

  60. Tamora3 says:

    Wow that’s creepy

  61. heavy39762 says:


  62. lump says:

    can’t find it. but i found an Uruk Hai lower half of head lol

  63. lump says:

    found it. pee’d myself

  64. jsdkahgjanv says:

    That was so simple! found it so fast! Id rate it a 10!

  65. AppaloosaGirl says:

    Ohmygod. I was looking at it for like a minute and then OHMYGOD IT’S STARING AT ME.
    It’s so obvious once you find it. It’s pretty freaky.

  66. 2bits says:

    I don’t see the face in the woods or the coffee bean face. Are the answers posted somewhere?

  67. Dave says:

    Good one. A little spooky.

  68. eksohorg says:

    Took me .0456 seconds to find it, I win

  69. jarod says:

    found it, but it startled me. he looks dead

  70. katie says:

    I mastered the coffee bean man but I almost had a heart attack when I saw him.I just can’t find him! I keep thinking I find him but, it is not an actual human face.

  71. katie says:

    OMG! I just found the face and it also just about gave ma a heart attack HINT:near bottem left. It is freak’n scary but, hidden well!

  72. jermaine says:

    its a creepy lookin face though only took a minute to that thing staring at me

  73. JoyJ15 says:

    Not gonna lie, it only took me about 5 seconds to find it but boy was that freaky! I wasnt expecting to see it that soon and it kinda just popped up out of no where…kinda creeped me out, lol

  74. Lindsey says:

    I got this picture in an email. It’s actually a guy in camo and under the leaves.

  75. Ahmad says:

    Found it…spooky

  76. majikbubble says:

    took me 10 seconds.

  77. patrick says:

    whoa! i found that really fast!

  78. Care Bear says:

    Aren’t there enough things hiding in the woods without throwing a face in there too?

  79. owen says:

    I see two one that I know is the one they want to find and I imagine the other is the one that Jerry Rosie found. Saw both within 10 secs.

  80. David says:

    Coffee bean was the clue, found it immediately

  81. Rikke says:

    That was a hard one…

  82. Deb says:

    Hmmn….. found it way too fast :)

  83. Antonius says:

    Pleaseeeeeee, help !!!

  84. jack says:

    found it as soon as I scrolled down. WHAT A FLUKE!!

  85. amold says:

    I see two faces, one a bit scary, one rather calm.

  86. Joel says:

    Lol s/he is just chilling there without a care in the world. Took less then that Coffee Bean illusion, but still a good way to practice ones attentiveness.

  87. Richard says:

    I found it but i wouldn’t compare with the bean one. In the bean one the face is hidden because we think it’s a bean.
    in this one the face is hidden by leaves and stuff and one can only see part of the face (eyes and mouth basically)
    the bean one is superior.

  88. Wilf says:

    Found it – then found a sort of other one.

  89. Han J says:

    Yep I see him…creepy…took me a while though!

  90. CurlyTail says:

    Yep. That was creepy.

  91. Cris says:


  92. Kimon says:

    Found it within 2 secs.

  93. Badredd says:

    Couldn’t fined it at first but After i found coffee been man I found him straight away!
    PS. if you have not found it, prepare to be spooked!

  94. J.P.Howde says:

    2/10 – but I’m not a fan of ‘Where’s Wally’ either so many, I’m sure, will love it.

  95. auntem321 says:

    Got it! Well hidden. thanks

  96. Raven says:

    Now that I’ve found it I can’t look at the picture without seeing it. I give this illusion a solid 8.

  97. Naomi says:

    Wow I found it but it almost scared me to death it looks really weird and if you take a while to find it then you do.Please wonder how long has that creepy face been staring at you !!!!

  98. Yanick says:

    The first face I’ve found was not the one similar to the coffee-bean illusion.

    So for me ther his 3 faces/figures in this image.
    One like the coffee-bean illusion, one of a famous sunday night cartoon character and a third more spectrum like of a woman.

    The first one I saw was the cartoon character

    Can you find all 3?

  99. Dina says:

    I couldn’t believe I didn’t see the face at first. I zoomed in on my screen to make it easier (I feel like I totally cheated.)

    I was like….”Whoa! There you are!”

    Great stuff! Keep these coming!

  100. kirolusion says:

    scaredthe hell out of me! I am still shaking!!
    for those who dont want to get frightened, dont look for him

  101. David Berron says:

    Good one, but it was really quite easy…

  102. Dennis says:

    Once you see it, it just stares at you. Kinda freaky. I watch my friends trying to find it and most of them find it within 45 seconds..

  103. ty says:

    anybody notice that there’s an animal hidden in there too? I was all ears when my 19 month old grandson pointed it out.

  104. Nina B says:

    I’ve been staring at it for a half hour and I don’t see it. I see one facelike thing, but I doubt its the one. It is not definite, or clear, or human like the coffee bean man. I found the coffee bean man, but only after reading the comments. I don’t think hidden object illusions are my cup of tea (or coffee), so I’m not going to rate it.

    • Nina B says:

      OK, after posting that, I suddenly saw it. I wonder why people think it is scary.

  105. Ramesh Baliga says:

    Good; About a minute and three stares:) Rating: 6/10.

  106. 3SecondsOnly says:

    I found it like immediately after reading the description
    it was fun for like 3 seconds!

  107. Beiber says:

    wow that is so spooky my heart jumpted :D
    i give this a 9.5 :D
    i love all your optical illusions they keep me thinking every day:D

  108. Dave says:

    Help! Can’t find it. Looking toward the right. How about another hint?

  109. Dave says:

    Wait, maybe I have it. Not much of a face if it’s what I think it might be. Is is small? Could be covered by a dime on the screen?

  110. Ubbe says:

    Didn’t see i before, came back today and spotted it in 15 seconds – but, all in all, a really great illusion

  111. Jos says:

    Found it, indeed looks a bit weird

  112. Merp says:

    I still can’t find it!! Can someone help me? lol

  113. KayBeQueenBee says:

    Hmm. I actually see what I believe to be three faces or my mind just making me think that they are faces. LOL Can someone please email me a detailed location, as not to spoil it for the others? Thanks. Kaybequeenbee@gmail.com

  114. Mickie says:

    Got it. Had to go look for the coffee bean man, when I came back it jumped right out. Neat.

  115. Golf says:

    I saw two faces, both around the same area.


  116. Brianathayes says:

    Still can’t see it!

  117. Dick says:

    Thought I found it the first time I looked at it and was wondering why people kept saying look to the right. When I came back it jumped out at me as the face everyone is seeing. The other face, the first face I found, is more ape-like. It’s in there too.

  118. Lee says:

    i know I’m gonna be giving it away a little, but Idon’t know whether i’m looking at the right thing or not. it’s at the lower right and part of it is concealed by leaves, right?

  119. threelancelot says:

    Found It!!! wow its great… and scary just like Cheddar Says.

  120. brenda says:

    can someone give me a hint? i can’t see it all… is it in the centre? top? bottome?

  121. Beverly says:

    Is it under rocks? Thats the only one I see.

  122. Randy says:


  123. Tara says:

    I found the silhouette of a person, but no face. This is really starting to frustrate me…arrgh!

  124. Tara says:

    Never mind…just found it (as soon as I posted a comment about not finding it – never fails – lol)! Very creepy!

  125. yeah1 says:

    It’s easy, bottom right corner… not too close to the bottom though. If you are wearing glasses, don’t bother. I showed my auntie who wears glasses and it took her a day and night constantly at the computer (she didn’t go to bed) to figure this one! She’s only just seen it now.

  126. Gelo says:


  127. ashley says:

    awesome, but creepy looking. 10

  128. Anis Khan says:

    ya good one. spotted the face. i was expecting something between the woods and in fact some vague figures can be seen

  129. KessBD says:

    Clever-ish. Think small. But then, that does make for an easy composition …

  130. c.s.flowers says:

    That was cool! Took me a minute then, wow starin right at cha.

  131. paul says:

    took longer than i want to admit but when i did find it it about scared me.
    I was looking at the picture from a distance though, thinking i was looking for a “big picture” kind of thing. As soon as i got close…

  132. Beverly says:

    I see another one in the leaves

  133. Sapoferoz says:

    before this goes away, I need help to see it!!!

  134. Sasa says:

    yesterday i didn’t, now i found it in 2 seconds!!! :-D

  135. suri says:

    good one

  136. Paul says:

    Still not seeing it. Some more hints please???

  137. oakley says:

    lol! so creepy when u find it … look 2 the bottom right of the screen

  138. Mark says:

    Maybe I was lucky, but I found it in two seconds. Much easier than the coffee bean for me, Then again I hike around the forest and measure trees and plants five days a week so I had better be able to spot an abnormality quickly. He is kind of freaky though. Reminds me of an X-files episode.

  139. jens says:

    Anyone else thought the X-Files episode “Detour”, with the invisible people in the woods?

  140. Sakura says:

    Absolutely awesome!

  141. Nathan says:

    Woah! That scared that scared the **** out of me when I fund it!

  142. Catie says:

    OMG that face is creeping me out

  143. Alison Appleby says:

    Just a day or two before you published this I watched Danny Wilten’s video on pareidolia & apophenia
    ( youtube.com/watch?v=xPlQb9GjETE&feature=g-u-u )
    Interesting … and I still can’t see it.

  144. Zaz says:

    hwooo! thats creepy..

  145. Roosie says:

    Oh, I loved the coffee bean man one so much I put it on my facebook but this one…. How easy??? :(

  146. Kevin says:

    Is it that thing that looks a little like a dog?

  147. Jex says:

    I found it in about 10 seconds.

  148. jose says:

    i can find the face… a clue?

  149. Alessandrina says:

    that took a several tries but I found it…great

  150. Rob says:

    This isn’t really an optical illusion – just camouflage.

    But, well done. Gave it 3 stars.

  151. Nelson says:

    Nice! Found it in less than 5 minutes! By Luck!

  152. Anna says:

    10 out of 10,
    I found it in seconds but it definitely made me jump when I saw it.

  153. Directly to the right of the rock pile

  154. Victor says:

    After doing that coffee bean one some how it took me a second to find it

  155. erin8ball says:

    this is hard!!!!!!!

  156. Ryan says:

    Cool, I found it pretty easily.

  157. Sapoferoz says:

    ok, got it. But not spooky at all.

  158. Thjald says:

    WOW !!! :0
    Took A While, But Then I Found It. Or Him
    It’s In The Right Buttum-Corner In The Leafs :)

  159. RN says:

    Creepy plant dude!

  160. Debolina Mukherjee says:

    love it. wnt more of such illusions

  161. Bheine says:

    found it, does anyone see the stone frog in the middle?

  162. Vivek says:

    thnks for the hint, found it superly done!!!

  163. Paul says:


  164. Mcfly11 says:

    oh god that looks like tom felton

  165. Steve says:

    I found the wrong one to start with! I found another partial one just to the right of the rocks, looks like a man screaming in pain!

  166. Andrew says:

    I rate it a 1 out of 10. Over-sold under-delivered on the pic description.

    Got it in about 2 seconds.

    C’mon, try harder…

  167. Connie says:

    It took me a good minute, but yeah, once spotted, I was totally creeped out! LOL
    I give it a 10

  168. Stephanie says:

    I found it in a couple seconds but, the eyes spooked me. I would rate it at 8. I prefer to see the art work or chalk drawings rather than this kind of thing.

  169. clarplayer says:

    I’ve have come back to this page for several days and I still find the face. All I can see something that looks like the “Pink Panther” involving the rock formations. Somehow I think I miss this boat.

  170. Stephanie says:

    Someone help me I just cannot see it!

  171. David says:

    Can’t get it :(

  172. Dave says:

    OK I give up – where is it?

  173. Judy says:

    I was expecting this one to be hard but I found it pretty much straight away were as it usually takes me ages

  174. elevown says:

    These types of pictures are annoying because I never know if im looking for a huge face, made of various elements, or the word ‘face’ or like this one, a tiny little thing hidden due to its size in a 95% normal photo.

  175. Maninexile says:

    Foound it after a few days/trys. It is an 8 or 9.

  176. Kevin says:

    i see two! one on the right side of the rocks and one in the right bottom corner? you see them?

  177. Tulex says:

    Ok, I see at least 5 faces. One is an actual face, one is a floating translucent face, and there are 3 made of rock, one being a side profile.

  178. BRob says:

    am I the only one that sees two faces?

  179. Bruce says:

    I found the one to the right of the rocks, which I think is the one they are looking for, and another one in the trees top just left of center, this looks like a ghost man.

  180. Larry says:

    I can’t believe they left a naked man’s bum in the woods back there disappearing in the trees. I wonder if that was intentional or in the original photo. The shoulder may be apparent, too, or it may just be another branch knot.

  181. Tim says:

    That was hard. Nice one

  182. Deepti says:

    Good one! I see two, 1 man and 1 tiger face.

  183. Belligero says:

    Lame-o! This is not an optical illusion by any definition.

  184. c.s.flowers says:

    It took a minute or so! Staring right at cha!


  185. Jette says:

    Haha omg that took me a few minutes lol. wow its kinda funny XD

  186. Tathagata Bhattacharya says:

    Nice ! Comparison with the “Hidden Coffee-bean man” is a good hint ! For those who are yet to solve, zooming the page ( Use “Ctrl” & “+” keys to magnify the page – since in the website there is no other option of zooming is available)may help you in identifying the face.

  187. AtomicBomb says:

    That face at right looks like jigsaws puppet billy!

  188. awesomemonk says:


  189. kyle says:

    LOl thats pretty creepy

  190. Emily says:

    OMG!!!! CREEPY!!!! :O

  191. Maakus says:

    Found it.Looks like a scene of CSI

  192. vz says:

    easier than coffee bean, but very creative

  193. t says:

    fgdfgfasddf WHERE IS IT?

  194. Amanda says:

    Didn’t even take me a second to find it.. :(

  195. zxcv says:

    Based on most of the comments I am reading, most of you guys have NOT found the face. Here is a hint: it is an ACTUAL face, not a bunch of items put together to “resemble” a face. Still haven’t found it? His face is very dirty, but his eyes and mouth are very easily identifiable. It’s partially obscured by some green leaves. OK, he’s on the far right, about 3/4 of the way down the photo.

  196. Spiral7 says:

    Look at the top ryte…I jizzed my pants…

  197. Ollie says:

    Omg that scared the s*** out of me

  198. froggy says:

    OMFG i hate typing these but…

    get OFF the computer, spin once, kiss your hand 5 times, post this on 2 DIFFERENT sites or else the love of your life will DIE one week the day you see this.


  199. srycntse says:

    sorry cant see it

    -up right, up left, down right, down left,
    middle left, middle right, middle, nothing

    -squinting my eyes nothing

    -staring/looking from close,far,left,right nothing

    -looking direct,away nothing

    cant see whats not there

  200. Shashi says:

    I find it….

  201. amy says:

    oh god that was scary, like someone buried a corpse only 3 foot deep and didnt cover the head

  202. Ravinder says:

    Not a big face, it is small one, look at the right,about 1 inch above from bottom. Reddish lips. just stares the green leaves.

  203. Megan says:

    HOLY CRAP!!! that`s scary :O

    The first face I found: starting from the Top-Right corner, an outline of a face looking towards the top-left corner. Sure, it’s awkward looking but it sort-of looks like a face. It’s not a spoiler because it’s not the main face. :)
