Magazine’s Soldiers Illusion


Dunno if you saw this, but what I do know is that we get letters all the time, urging us to devote more space to Salvador Dali’s life and work. Here you have it: a cover of a Match magazine, dating all the way back to October 12th, 1939, which was created by Salvador Dali himself. What you see is an apparition of a War Scene, but when you look more closely, you’ll see the face of Lieutenant Deschanel *whoever he is*…

    i mean, uh, this is the illusion that s-should come first in a competition i know. lol

  • Joseph

    It should be, “If you stand farther away” instead of “If you look more closely.” :P

  • Enrique

  • Honey

  • Care Bear

  • Valerie

    When I stand back from the screen, the only thing that I can see is the face of Deschanel. I’m finding it quite hard to see the other stuff. Like it though as I keep finding more things inside the face the more I look.

    this is a nice one :)

    but got a question. Why does your site reload again after it has loaded?

  • May

    I personally would love to see more of Dali’s work.

    We actaully just did a project on Dali/Surrealism in my computer art class; it really inspired me to learn some more about him.

  • Whoa! I totally did not notice the face till you pointed out, you can see it easier from father away :)

  • vrej

    i love these type of illusions. they always show 2 things going on at once. i also like the ones where you have to turn the picture upside down to find the face :)

  • Jack
