Anonymous user submited this illusion yesterday. This painting is work from Alex Grey, an artist who does simmilar trippy pictures, usually oil on wood. How many faces can you find? There are seven if I see correctly. If you see more, be sure to comment!

  3. Zippy says:

    Thank you, but the illusion makes my head hurt. Owwwh.
    I will have to decline your magazine subscription offer.

    But, I will take an aspirin and call you twice in the morning.
    I look forward to reliving this experience again (sometimes).

  4. Makkhdyn says:

    There are two craniums, two foetuses (in the craniums) and three heads in the middle.

  5. Raquelness says:

    where? i only see 5!

    the face in the middle, the two on either side of the face as a profile of it, and the two like skeletin ones on the sides.

  6. kiki says:

  7. Becky says:

    The fetuses either side of the skulls are weirding me out!

  8. sean says:

  9. jim_hellas says:

    yeap! I also see seven faces. Three man faces, two skulls and two babies…

    Nice photo!

  10. dida says:

    tool presented this artwork in their new album with stereooptic lenses. the lenses then gave the pictures depth, kinda like 3d

  11. lisa says:

    This image is on the new album from the band Tool The cd case came with stereooptic lenses. The lenses made all the pictures inside appear to have depth (3D), including this one. It has to be one of the coolest albums ever made.

  12. kimi says:

    I can only see 5 faces.. Where’s the other 2?

  13. Icefeldt says:

    I see:

    7 faces
    2 embryos

  14. Rootman says:

    I count 5, 2 skulls on either side, 3 faces in the middle. Where’s the other 2?

  15. tubes42024 says:

    I knew that looked familar thar is the cover for the new TOOL album but they just used the middle three faces. What an awesome picture! Can’t wait to go to his shop the next time I’m in NYC.

  16. The Rog says:

  18. keysie says:

    my eyes are bleeding!

  19. Dee says:

    I only see 5 faces and 2 things that look like the back of 2 heads but not the faces.

  20. Niki says:


    One face in the middle.
    Two faces turned away from the center face.
    Two skulls
    Two creepy baby-looking things, one in each skull

  21. Li'l Johnny says:

    Faces feces! I see NO faces. What is wrong?

    Well, I’m blind if you must know.
    When will you be offering amazing Braille puzzles?

    I live in Rio Bravo, Brasil and we don’t get mail here very often.
    But, I’ll keep an eye out for your illusions translated to finger bumps.

    c’ya later

  22. Melf says:

    Yursh, i see seven. come on peepz!!

  23. Monica says:

    If you look inside the sculls, you can see 2 babies. They both have faces too.

  24. Chris says:

    Yeah, this image is a lot more kickass in 3d. You should go out and buy the album (10,000 days by Tool), It’s got a whole booklet full of images like this, and stereoscopic lenses to view them with. I wonder who submitted this…

  25. livie lou says:

    i c 7 the skulss the 3 faces in the middle and the 2 babies in the skull

  26. lulu says:

    i see dead people! seriously, i see seven, i saw the 2 foetuses first!

    cool pic!

  27. MeMyselfNI says:

    Does any one know where one would be able to find a print of this picture? Oh and by the way definately 7 faces. Though I’m not quite sure that babies count as faces.

  28. brigy says:

    i see it i took a while but it is really cool
    it is also on the album cover of tool
    that awesome man

  29. Heather says:

    I see 5 faces
    and 2 embryo’s

  30. XJR says:

    There are embryo’s at the sides….

  31. Payam A. says:

    there are 7, look on the sides, the baby ones

  32. kiwikid says:

    7? Ooooh, the 3 obvious ones. the two foteus, and there are two coming of the side of the head in the middle.

  33. LEON says:

    Earth to Li’l Johnny:

    Aha, ha! I get your sarcasm toward us sighted people.
    Chill, bro; please don’t be bitter. I’m sorry if you really can’t see.

    But, think for a moment, that your attitude toward people who can see might be seen as a form of REVERSE DISCRIMINATION.

    “C-can’t we all j-just g-g-get along?” and enjoy these cool pics in peace?

    Stay cool, bro.

    Your friend, Leon

  34. huxley says:

    Hi I can see 7 faces,the face in the middle, the two on either side of the face ,then 2 skulls facing the middle face and on the either side of the skull u can seee 2 face of foetus……but it bleeds my mind…….

  35. BurninRubber says:

    I only see five. 3 human ones and two skulls. I noticed in the past comments there were baby faces in the skulls. I CAN’T FIND THEM!!! Oh well, it’s just an illusion.

  36. vicky says:

    i c 7 lol its mint wow


    help! i can’t find the babies! PLEASE HELP AND REPLY! luv th illusions.

  38. stump jump junky says:

    The two skulls on the side if you look at where the ears are you can see the two embrios (babies with hands & feet).

    And on the TOOL CD if you look throught the two glasses that are built into the CD case these illusions are actually in 3D

  39. Delgadude says:

    I can see:

    1 middle face
    2 faces on sides of middle face
    2 skulls
    2 back of heads on ears of skulls
    2 noses on bottom of skulls

    Anyone else see the noses?

  40. Jade says:

    I dont know if im meesed up in the mind (Which I probly am) but I c 8. There is like a mini body in the middle guys 4head. the body has its arms up and over the head with his knees bent and out and his feet together and he is just floating there. Just thought I let u know.

  41. psychdude says:

    are the skull’s teeth not also skulls? take a closer look…

  42. Marie says:

    There is definately 8. Jade, I see the little guy on the forehead of the middle face. It looked like a gem on his forehead at first, but when you zoom in, its definately a figure. Not a face, but a figure. His body is in the shape of a figure 8. OMG! Get it?? Its another figure, and the 8th one found! LOL, and he’s a figure 8! LOL, trippy! :p

  43. Angela says:

    Who names themself Melf?

    Anyway, I don’t think that number eight should count as a face. It does look like a man, but the picture is too small to tell if that’s not just a decorative bead or something.

    And Seven’s one of my favorite numbers

    the skulls
    the pointed nose guys in the skulls
    the foetuses
    theres kinda another 2 where the ones coming off the middle meet the skulls, I’ts not very clear but i think they look like faces. :D

  55. Anonymous says:

    There are seven! Inside the skulls all the way to the outside there is a fetus with a face in either one. It may be easier to find the fetus’s foot.

    Theres two little babys in the skulls heads. those are the other two faces.

  91. penis says:

    i can see 7 faces. look closely on the isde and inthe skullz u will be able to see a little baby.

  92. ME! says:

    Am I the only one who sees 13?

    The first 7 are easy, 8…9…10…11…12, quite hard. But the “unlucky 13th one, I am not even sure!

  93. Cornelius says:

    Ok so there are 7 faces. But the skulls, the babies and the profiled men of the central man are reflective, so that reduces the total to 4. Furthermore, the profiled men might be the same one as the central man, further reducing the total to 3.

    That was just the obvious. Someone pointed out 2 “scary” faces inside the skulls. Not counting reflection, that increases the total to 9. Someone else pointed mini skulls in the 2 main skulls’ teeth. I can see 4 of them in each main skull; they are the molars. That’s 8 more faces, increasing the total to 17! I also noticed a gem below the central face. Looking at it closely, I saw two eyes making it look like some sort of flat fish, a pointy manta ray like sole. Now there are 18 faces in that pic. 18 FACES!!! not counting reflection
