But the version I know is more of a drawing than an animation… Kind of a cooler effect”. As Ramy said, it’s a variation of previous Rabbit Duck illusion, that was posted two days ago. Can you see both animals in the picture below? Sure you can! After you’re finished, be sure to check spot the object category for dozen of more illusions. Specially notice these popular illusions: autumn motives, hybrid images, circles or spiral and swans illusion by Salvador Dali.

    The title for this should be “New” Rabbit or a Duck Illusion. This one has been around for a while… Not on this site perhaps but it’s not new.

    “popularised” by Ludwig Wittgenstein in his Philosophical Investigations (1953, including a sketch of the duckrabbit:

    “I contemplate a face, and then suddenly notice its likeness to another. I see that it has not changed; and yet I see it differently. I call this experience “noticing an aspect…” And I must distinguish between the ‘continuous seeing’ of an aspect and the ‘dawning’ of an aspect…. I see two pictures, with the duck-rabbit surrounded by rabbits in one, by ducks in the other. I do not notice that they are the same. Does it follow from this that I see something different in the two cases? It gives us a reason for using this expression here. “ I saw it quite differently, I should never have recognized it!” Now, that is an exclamation. And there is also a justification for it. I should never have thought of superimposing the heads like that, of making this comparison between them…. I describe the alteration (change of aspect) like a perception; quite as if the object had altered before my eyes…. The expression of a change of aspect is the expression of a new perception and at the same time of the perception’s being unchanged. I suddenly see the solution of a puzzle-picture.”

    The duckrabbit was a perceptually ambiguous figure originally introduced by the Gestalt psychologist J. Jastrow in his book Fact and Fable in Psychology (1900).
