Floating Arrow Illusion


Remember the Cool Bro illusion from 2 years ago? This one’s very similar, in a way where street-painted arrow appears to levitate in mid-air. Caught by the sharp eye of Melissa, a reddit user who found it funny and decided to share her finding with our Mighty Optical Illusions community.

    i think the arrow drawing is manipulated.

  • John

    Very nice execution.

  • Steve H

    No I think the arrow was originally painted in the wrong spot, then they covered it up with a black paint and then re-painted the arrow in yellow on top. Perfect illusion!

  • Steve

    I’ve seen this before, where the road department will spray black paint over the old marking and then put the new one down with fresh “traffic yellow” paint.

    Probably by a graffiti artist with a sense of humor. You can see marks in the drawn shadow that would not be in a real shadow.

  • Annie

    Of course it is; the shadow is just painted on. It’s not a REAL floating arrow, it just LOOKS like one.

    It’s very well done, and very clever.

  • Bob

    They both are painted on the road surface – the black from the side acts as a shadow of the arrow.

  • girrafun

    much better than the Cool Bro illusion!

  • Anonymous Girl

    This illusion is rubbish.

  • suor de sapo

    I like graffitis and I specially like those that shows sense of humor.
