Ultimate Horses Illusion

Tony Ward mailed me this interesting illusion. First time I saw it, I tought to myself: “Right, another count the horses illusion – nothing new”! But what struck me was next email Tony sent to me. There is actually something hidden in picture itself. Can you see it? I didn’t until Tony priovided outlined picture solution. Open the image full size and try locating the illusion (it isn’t the birds!)

This is what Tony Ward sent in his first email: “This one I’ll always love, not just because its a beautiful piece of art,but because I had thought for a long time that it was catagorised as an optical illusion simply due to the way the horses fade into the picture one side and fade out, changing into a flock of birds, the other side…. Then, one day I saw it, the hidden illusion, and it blew me away….”

There were few very simmilar illusions posted in the past here.

  1. Oh, I see. Yeah, That’s really cool. It took me a moment, but i saw it. Nice post.
    Ps. If you can’t see what’s hidden, it’s in the middle of the picture.

  2. Where is it? The horses look really cool, but I can’t find any illusion, although it looks like there ought to be something in the middle there. Help!

  3. ummmm…nice horses…but what is the middle supposed to be exactly…all i se is a dark brown blob….

  4. omg that’s so cool! and it fits in with the whole theme, like, i mean, horses running wild or whatever…..very………Geronimish.

  5. Hi!

    OK, im not to good for this kind of things, but,…. the ilusion is the face of a man in de middle of the image?? … its the only thing i can see … is this right?

  6. Looks to me like a chick hatching out of an egg… if that helps anyone. Very good illusion.

    That horse’s head in the middle is the chicks head.

  7. It is eye-candy not only ’cause some can c the hidden … (Michelle said not to spoil other’s fun :-) ), but ‘cause it appears people can c what they wanna c and that iiiis an illusion…

  8. Took me a while but “it” appeared!!!! Good art – keep looking to the right of centre, facing right…no more help!

  9. The only thing I see is something that looks like a lion, but i am not sure and dont think that is the right thing to see. Some help would be nice!

  10. This is not funny anymore without knowing what do we have to see. Someone please spoil the illusion but tell us what it is!!! I don’t understand why is it sooo amazing!!! Or at least put a link to the outline, so we can decide wether to see it or not!

    PLZ!!!!

  11. it’s the face of a native american, for anyone who’s asking. his face is made up of the reddish spots on the horses. try to unadjust your eyes to see it. he is in profile looking right, and his nose is a white space. i hope it helps.

  12. Huh? A person’s face? A lion? Oh well i geuess i see it a little differently (correct spelling?). Anyway,I see a horse’s head, I think. It’s in the center. The ear and mane is accually the manes of many horses put together; the body and muzzle are the white patches. I know it’s confusing, but I hope it helps.

  13. STRANGE BUT TRUE, I SAW THE ILLUSION INSTANTLY IN FACT, I HAVE A HARD TIME FOCUSING ON THE REST OF THE PICTURE. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT EVER REALLY HAPPENED TO ME. I NEVER CAN FIND THE HIDDEN STUFF

  14. I guess, the illusion is with the birds that are coming out of Horses. Hope I hit the right spot. Good one for keeping as a portrait in Hall with title ‘UNBRIDLED’.

  15. its a red indian who looks a bit like a lion. look at the tallest horse – thats his hair. then the white patch slightly below and to the right – thats the face. focus on the middle between the highest horse head and lowest foot. hope that helps

  16. It’s obviously an indians head in the middle. I would be curious to see an outline of the lion people are seeing. ;)

  17. When I first saw this I thought it was a lion but I looked closer and realized that it was the face of a man, and definitly a Native American. I think it’s beautiful! His hair is flowing back(that’s why I thought it was a lion because it looked like a mane).

  18. Omg, I opened it up and saw it after just a few seconds, Im really proud of myself! It’s a great illusion and i think it is a great idea. It may seem abit wierd but i have trouble seeing the horses!!! Loving it, more like this please

  19. I guess it is more difficult to find the illusion for analytic people. Don’t focus, try to overview the whole thing. If somebody gives up tell him where is the mouth, I think it is a certain clue.This is one of the best illusions I’ve found in this site.

  20. Usually I’m pretty good w/ this stuff but I couldn’t see it until I came back to the pic and read some explanations. Thanks everyone! Very cool idea.

  21. LOL
    As I said in the original quote, it was a while before I saw it……..a few of you have got it spot on…..but it aint a lion……

  22. Most of the time it takes me forever to see anything. not this time Indian face, side view looking right. its in the center. I can make out the face more than I can tell there are horses.

  23. I saw the face of an indian right away. Don’t know where the lion and other things are coming from. Didn’t see anything else.

  24. never been more amazed by an illusion painting…at first i saw the entire picture to be some sort of bird with its wings spread and flying towards the screen…but looking in the middle my jaw dropped. =O

  25. YOU SEE A NATIVE AMERICAN IS THE MIDDLE WHERE WHERE ALL THE BROWN IS!!! THE FACE IS IN THE CENTER!!! IT LOOKS LIKE A “C” AT FIRSY BUT IT WIN BEGIN TO DEVELOP!!! IT’S AMAZING!!!

  26. **********SPOILER WARNING************
    *************************************
    The face is looking to your right (his left) and the top of its head is the highest peak of the brown in the middle.

  27. Yeh, I see it. It looks like there’s a face in the middle. He looks like an Indian Cheif or something…

  28. wow! that’s neat! at first, when i was looking, i saw a dalmation head on the left made up of dots… maybe its just me. then i saw the real illusion in the middle. that is really cool. took me a while though

    1. Thanks but the only thing I don’t get is how that looks like an Indian head. Someone please explain this.

  29. i see.. a whole bunch of stuff O.O but im still not sure exactly what it is.. i see faces, and some guy with glasses sleeping … XD i have NO idea what it means… WHAT IS IT!! GRR!!!

  30. ahahahah thats so mad
    first i saw the horses
    than i saw an egle (the hole shape and its head)
    then i saw the indian took me for ever though !

  31. I saw it. It was a Native American dude head. It was staring at me. I was scared. It’s right in the center of the horses!

  32. FINALLY! I FINALLY FOUND IT! I have been looking for forever! i mean it, I have had this bookmarked for months I look every week and still haven’t seen it! Then i finally do!

  33. its horses turning into a flock of birds, as stated in the fucking text above the picture! READ PEOPLE READ!

    1. dude thts pretty obvious tht they turn into birds so ofcourse thts not the hidden image, hense to word HIDDEN

    2. WHY DON’T U READ THE TEXT???!!!! READ IT ALL, NOT JUST A LINE OR TWO. IT SAYS THATS NOT THE ILLUSION!!

    3. Oh my god! Rachel, you are SO EXTREMELY COOL AND HARDCORE; you said the word “fucking”. You are such a rebel. Extremely cool and unique. *inserts sarcasm*

      First of all:
      – Why don’t you read?
      – Isn’t it pretty obvious that they change into birds? The text said there was another HIDDEN illusion.
      – Don’t swear: It makes you seem even more stupid than you already are.

  34. Wow, I didn’t see it for so long, and I’m normally quite good at this stuff! But I must admit it’s a wonderful picture even without the native American…

  35. It’s none of the above because I work with a person who makes optical illusions and we looked on this website and founded tha it’s actually a bird riding on a horse. If you look in the middle (the brown part) and zoom in then you will see what it actually is! It’s not a bloody native American or a rockstar! XD

  36. i still cant see it but i love the artwork. THis really portrays the speed of a horse, as fast as if they are flying across the horizon

  37. if you cant see it, then enlarge the picture and stare at the middle.the eyes,mouth,hair,are all there,so what is it? look again

    1. OMG!!! I change my mind!!!! I squinted and saw a bunch of native American Indians running!!!! Cool! And I should know-we 11 year olds know when something is cool or lame!
