Here is an “impossible” version pictured with a high degree of realism. The two points where the linear edges must overlap have been purposely confused. The resulting figure produces an even more jarring figure-ground dilemma, likely to be interpretted as humorous or upsetting.

  5. Pyro says:

    i can c the answer

    the bar that seems 2 go behind does
    its kinda bent like a V if you look at it from the top


  6. nopper says:

    the bar in back that seems to go through the front bar really doesn’t.

    the bar in front is cut just rihgt to make it look like that.

  7. dan says:

    its picture taken at an angle so you don’t notice that none of the wood pieces and connected.

  8. everybody apart from hai is so dumb says:

    Google Jerry Andrus and you will find the original creator of this illusion – some 20+ years ago

    if you stare at it for a long time
    then its a cube!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, this is done in Photoshop. Look closely at the bar that should go in the back, but is in the front. If you look close enough, they are a different resolution, not by much, but a little. Obviously, the bar was created and placed overtop the front bar, but covers up the back bar.

    its sooooooooooooo easy the wooden peice is cut

  16. Tom says:

    it can be drawn in Auto CAD then rendered. I just performed this drawing. once completed, the wood is cut. Yet geometrically your eyes will not accept this.

    um obviously they photoshopped and copied the from left post and pasted it in the back right corner on top. stupid as hella mofo

  18. richie says:

    its a drawing it doesnt need to be possible the top right corner is’nt connected if it was it would make sence

  19. Anonymous says:

    this was not photoshopped and it is not a drawing. The bar was cut. The right side is cut slanted so the side of the right side is not seen.

    I’ve got an optical illusions book that has this in it. I agree with comments 3, 6, 8, 9, 11, 12, 18, and ESPECIALLY 15.

  22. Anonymous says:

  26. superdudeo says:

    one part is cut,so it looks like it goes behind,when it actualy isnt there.NOT photoshop.u just have 2 get the right angle

  27. ayz says:

    the top bar was connected behind… see the angle that it is going going behind the bar.. right angle of camera and…. thada….. illusion…

  28. T.B. says:

    this image is being used on Mrs. Thibodeau’s psychology class website. also this is called a paradox illusion a paradox illusion is something that looks convincing to us in 2D but yet is impossible in 3D

  29. Stupid says:

    its abuse curve!!! with the right angle of camera!

  30. Meegan Galante says:

    I know how to make it! It’s so EASY!

  31. Norman Christopherson says:

    I have seen it from a slight different angle. This has been around for some time. The top front bar is cut perfectly, so it appears it goes in back of the rear bar

    They probably just have sick painting skills
