Anamorphosis Illusions


What you see in this image below is 1535 wood carving by Erhard Schön. The picture appears to be scribbled black ink, but features the condensed images (from left to right) of Charles V, Ferdinand I Pope Paul III, and Francis I. It can be expanded (about 6:1 horizontally) on a computer and rotated 90° counterclockwise. If you jump inside this article, you can see what the original Erhard Schön picture really hides. There is one more example inside. The other way to look at anamorphic images like these, is to stand just below the painting and look up, then you can see it. Previously I posted some anamorphic photos, that work on a same principle, yet different approach to this phenomena. See: Jules Verne in cylinder mirror, Walt Disney, anamorphic tea cups

  • What is this?

    photoshopped beyond belief!!!

      it’s not really an illusion, and it’s definitely not the best, but I guess you can’t really say it’s the *worst.*

  • -dragon-

    Considering it was made in 1535, before either photoshop or the modern computer, I highly doubt that it is a photoshop.

  • if you look at them when your eye level they look like that

  • megan

    its not photoshopped. i used to draw like that all the time. you have to hold the picture horizontal in front of your eyes, and look down the sheet of paper. they are fun to make :)

  • Bob

    if u stretch out a rubber band and write something on it then release it it will look like that.
