Love Ambigram Optical Illusion

Got this item through an email message. Not much to be said about it. If you open the article, you’ll see another photo that explains the illusion. It’s really simple! An ambigram, AKA an inversion or flipscript is a graphical figure that spells out a word, not only in its form as presented, but also in another direction or orientation. Text can consist of a few words, and the text spelled out in the other direction or orientation is often the same, but can also be different. Now to give you all some short history lesson! (I copy pasted this from Wikipedia) – The term “ambigram” was first used to mean “ambiguous anagram” by Judith E. Bagai, a former editor of The Enigma, the official organ of The National Puzzlers’ League. According to John Langdon, ambigrams were independently invented by himself and by Scott Kim in the 1970s. Kim used the name Inversions as the title of his first collection in 1981. I have linked some words in this text with appropriate ambigram examples. Check them if you wish!

    1st 1 says: amor (french, means love)

    sorry but you are mistaking, in french it’s Amour for love.

    En français c’est amour pour dire Love.

    just to prove that I speak french ..not to show off ;op

  2. Sometime you just need a creative eye to see these things. Neither way round says amot or lowe, it’s a shame some can’t see this very well crafted design. It brilliant

  3. A nice ambigram but little forced. I think that is why some people reads it as lowe or amot…

    The first one I see in two languages. By the way, love is amor in spanish and portuguese but in french is amour…

  4. Lol the first one says Amor which means cupid. here : Amor is Latin, Galician, Catalan, Portuguese, Romanian and Spanish for love

    Amor is an alternative name for Cupid, the Roman god of love. His equivalent is Eros in Greek mythology.

    Cupid = Little angle of love me thinks its right…

  5. Im Mexican… First one reads AMOR that means LOVE in english! not portuguese, french, german…. SPANISH!! Best Regards

  6. Amor is the Greece god of love, called Cupido in Latin. He is marked by his arrows which he fires at people to let them fall in love. Nice ambigram.

  7. some of u guys are really dumb, its not AMOT its AMOR(spanish for love) and its not LOWE its LOVE

    oh yea and it could be french for love(amour) but its missing the u

  8. “Amor” means “love” in Latin, and by that it means “love” in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Romanian and a couple of other Roman languages

  9. No, you don’t have to be a linguist to understand this. I am brazilian and I’m pretty sure that a lot of people – at least here – know that “amor” means love in Spanish, too.
    Btw, I speak portuguese, and yes, it IS amor.
    Don’t know about Romanian, but in Latin is amor, too. French is amour.
    Now, am I a linguist just because I know a basic word in a few languages?

  10. Well, Amor does mean love, but that’s not the illusion…

    If you turn the picture around it will say ”Love”. ”Amor” when turned upside-down, will spell ”Love”

  11. you can put the first on as amor or amos. amor is love and amos is the mythycal greek god of love, aphrodites son AKA cupid. If your bored continue if your not im ganna make you be bored. (dont ask how i know this all)Amos in greek mytholigy is a troubesome charactor he is known for shooting people with his golden arrows which make them fall in love. One time apollo, god of sun and music, insulted amos that he could play the flute (that Athena, goddess of war and knowledge, made) better then any god or goddess in the world. while the rest of the gods and goddess’s of olympus knew he was kidding, Amos took it seriously. Apollo said that because he was in love with this beautiful river nymph (or a nereid)named calypso. but calypso didnt like Apollo. one morning Apollo was watching Calypso from behind a bush, nearby amos was watching. He had a plan to shoot calypso with one of his Anti-love arrows, and he did. Calypso noticed Apollo when she got shot with the magic arrow. She started running and appolo chased her until she came upon a river. Then she prayed to her father, the god Posiedon to help her, so Posiedon did… by turning her into a lemon tree. When apollo saw he was defastated. Thats why we have Calypso lemonade and why Apollo wore a wreath on his head. i told you i’d bore you to death…
