Another spectacular picture was sent in to us by Anthony! It’s just one among many illusions crafted and painted by Donald Rust, yet this one is a bit different and steps away a bit from Rusty’s usual style. At first the illusion isn’t so easy to notice, but once you see it you can’t ignore it. So, what does the hidden message say? Have you noticed it at all? Happy hunting!

    Peace On Earth

  7. Micah says:

    The text is very easy to make out but it’s still a decent illusion. If the text hadn’t been so white it would have been a bit more difficult.

    I’m an eternal optimist personally and hope the message does come true eventually.

  8. Uros says:

    Easy, found it in 3 sec. =)

  9. Izhar says:

  10. Matjl says:

    Its okay, but a bit easy to find, especially with the thumbnail

  11. Louie says:

    I won’t say what it says but if you squint, view the picture from far away or shrink it down, you’ll be able to see what the hidden message is. :-)

  12. Darren says:

    That was too easy

    a bit hard to read, but I’m afraid what it says is an illusion. In at least two meanings. :·\

  28. LarsW says:

    I can see Peace on Earth! Shame that the dream wont become true :(

  33. shelby says:

    yeah peace on earth

  34. Peter says:

    Only problem is the “secret message” is easy to spot in a small image – like the widget! So when viewing a larger image I had already seen the “hidden” message and, as Vurdlak stated, I could not ignore it!

    Still a very nice painting with an interesting way to illustrate the theme.

  35. Pengu73339 says:

    i think it says “peace on earth” but i may be wrong ’cause i cant find “rth”
    keep em comin’ :) =)

  56. George says:

    The hidden message is “Peace of cake”, which makes no sense because the right phrase is “Piece of cake”.

  57. breandan says:

    Well, The thumbnail gives it away – not to mention the name of the gif. But hey, it’s a great painting with a timely message for all that. Thanks for sharing it.

  60. Hypersapien says:

    Very cool, but I wish you wouldn’t put the answer in the title tag. I’m glad I didn’t see that until after I saw the message.

  61. Dave says:

    Peace in Earth!

  62. Kiryuu says:

    It took some careful looking on my part, but I finally saw it. Beautiful work.

    Sometimes, you just need to sit back and assess the situation as a whole to truly understand a message.

  86. Tish says:

    It helps to squinch your eyes so the picture is blurry.
