Castle of Illusions


Here and then, Internet websites dedicated to LEGO organize a contest, where people can submit their entires, resulting with some very creative submissions. Flickr user named 2MuchCaffeine has posted his second entry for the CCCVII contest, but what is more important (at least to us) is that his castle has number of optical illusions implemented in it’s design. Check out the first photo, and then try and spot as many optical illusions you can. I’ve also included another photo, shot under different angle, detailing how he achieved the optical illusion without using a photo editing program. Are you impressed as I am, with the amount of thought that went building this? For more LEGO illusions, check out this link.

  • GreenGirl13

  • Alexendria

    Really cool! Awesome, nicely planned.

  • Care Bear

    No wonder Lego was named Toy of the Century. These are so cute despite the fact that when my kids were little I was always discovering legos in the strangest places–like my shoes.

  • shruti

    wow !!
    this is amazing…… n i can spot only two, impossible objects type illusion in the first photo.
    1. d towers seem to impossible but d second photo describes it

    n 2. d gateway also seems impossible but is justified in d second photo…//

  • Renz Garcia

    That’s clever! I’m not good with building complicated lego stuff. I wish I was good at it!

  • chuibby

    I love when these opticals illusions are based on our angle of view :P

  • sam

  • Alicia

    i dont get it??? tell me what its supposed to mean!!! plz

  • Kate

    Very very clever, thanks for that

  • Synco

    Nice illusion,
    I was puzzled how he did it, when looking at the first picture only. Although I am familiar with technique he used, as revealed in the second picture. I did not realize it was done that way until I saw the second picture. So the illusion worked for me. Thanks

  • wowaname

    Well darn, that ruined the secret. XD
    Really, that is interesting how it’s done, but it’s so… simple. Too simple.

  • guest

    badly done photoshop job…

  • Jenni

    very impressive!

  • Pineapplez x3

    I love these illusions, and I’ve seen many of them on this website xD

  • Ice

    that is so cool…i guessed correctly that the bottom arch near the tree would be like that…but i didnt know the top tower was like that

  • Cameron Kuhn

    Hah thats epic, good illusion

    And…dare i say it? First? XD I hate people who do that O.o

  • Anonymous

  • This is really neat-o

  • g4m4de

    I think that only one thing here is real – that tree. Amazing :)

  • Detective Kitty

    Fantastic. This not only proves his skill and thought process but also shows you how certain impossible images are created. I only see two impossible shape illusions and can not find anymore though, if there is more I would like to see them…

  • Noone

    totally awesome!

  • i never new somebody can do that with lego

  • Dolphin

    I could do it exept I can’t sit still for that long…Or maybe I could,but I don’t have that many legos either…Oh well! This is really cool especially if you think how long it took!

  • Lyrics

    Whoever this man is, he is clearly either a very good architect, or a patient man that knows how to think.
