Benjamin Franklin or George Washington?


Title says it all. Help me “see this one” – if you look at the image from sides, narrow your eyes, or simply step away from your monitor, silhouette of a famous person wil appear. I’m just not sure if it’s Benjamin Franklin or George Washington or someone third… Previously I posted simmilar illusion of Einstein which can be found in Celebreties Category, along with other simmilar ones posted at the bottom of the Spot The Object Category.

    I can see eyes and nose but no detail. But one thing I did notice is cleavage. I don’t think it’s george.

  • fxer

    Not sure who it is, by those flaps hanging off his collar I would think he is older than washington/franklin, but i’m not sure. Perhaps Isaac Newton?

  • meh

    not sure…

  • Tha G

    Isaac Newton. Or one of those krazy english science guys. It’s definitley not Mr. Franklin or Mr. Washington, whoever they are.

  • dea

  • kristen

    I think it may be John Adams. But Isaac Newton is a good guess too.

  • go eagles

    actually, being from PA i’m pretty sure its William Penn.
    Who is the founder of Pennsylvania ( it means Penn’s woods). the reason you can see much detail is because there isn’t much, Penn was a quaker who were very simple people.

  • Salt & Pepa

    A body like arnold with a denzel face

  • taleah

    actually to me it looks like a woman – those collar flaps could be seen as bare skin and where they come apart as cleavage – just my interpretation anyway.

  • Manda

  • Samii

    Yes the person in the illusion above does look a lot like Cotton Mather if you look at the images of him on google. He wears those white flap things around his neck on every picture you see of him aswell.

    On a very loosely related tangent.
    The band “Cotton Mather” is one of my very favorites.

    I can see the bloke but I’m british so I have’nt got a bloody clue.

  • Grant

    im 100% sure its George. The face outline, the eye shape, the nose shape, the mouse angle and shape, the wig shape, they all match. The one thing I don’t know is the clothes he’s wearing, but clothes can be changed, face stays the same. I thought it might be Ben, but the face outline and many other characteristics don’t match.
    and I don’t even have to say its not Cotton Mather or Newton.

  • **~**AAAQueen**~**

    Go eagles is right, William Penn didn’t have much details in his face. He was a simple quaker who, as he said founded Pennsilvania, or Penn’s woods. I learned it from a video our fifth grade teacher showed us.
    But this could be anybody.0:)

    Isaac Newton!!!!!!!!
    It’s neither of those patriotic guys.

  • Federico Hosiasson

  • liam

  • unknown

    It can be anybody from the nineteenth centuries
    Americans tend to see the president
    (and also because the title says so)
    and really, people, learn ur history
    in Shakespeare’s and Bach’s time they didn’t have lace collars!
    and yeah, it does look a lil bit like the Quaker Oats guy

    • Jeremy

      Lace was around since the 15th century, and so even if they weren’t common until later, lace collars could have been around since then. And even so, it’s art. It doesn’t necessarily have to be realistic. And The nineteenth century sounds a little late to me.

  • random

    This is Edward Jenner, the creator of the first inoculation against smallpox (using the cowpox bacillus). EXACT Photo at
    And from Wikipedia –
    Edward Anthony Jenner (17 May 1749 – 26 January 1823) was an English scientist who studied his natural surroundings in Berkeley, Gloucestershire. Jenner is widely credited as the pioneer of smallpox vaccine, and is sometimes referred to as the “Father of Immunology”; his works have been said to have “saved more lives than the work of any other man”.

    its gaddafi

  • no one else commented. that’s so sad.

  • Michael

    It’s John Baptiste De La Salle.

  • tadchem

    The collar is distinctive: 17th to early 18th century protestant clerics wore this.
    John Wesley-type, but not him. Cotton Mather, perhaps, or John Cotton.

  • jlb02486

    It’s not Benjamin Franklin or George Washington. Cotton Mather had more hair on top. It may be John Cotton.

  • Just me

    It’s Bach.
