Mona Lisa Smile


Here’s another apropriate illusion, just in time for the Da Vinci Code movie! Previously I posted Ambigrams Illusion, so check our archive or use the search box. This one is also amazing! Look at this fliped image of Mona Lisa. There are two of them – they appear exactly the same, and nothng looks strange about them. O, how wrong you are… Jump inside this post to see what happens if you rotate the image 180 degrees. Amazing!

    I noticed the flipped eyes when I first looked at it. Maybe it’s because I spent a couple of years enhancing and cropping crime scene photos.

  • Esau

    I did notice the frown on the Mona Lisa on the right upside down. I then automatically said that one is shown different even upside down.

  • Mike

    The frown was obvious to me but not the eyes until the flip.

  • The lil’ Sizzler :P

    i see the frown and the downflipped eyes but i still dont understand the illusion.

  • Kristyne

    The illusion is very weird and amazing, but I don’t quite understand how it works

  • Erin

    it was awsome man i couldn’t even tell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • matza

    ahem.. it’s not really an illusion to me… the eyes are clearly different, and so is the smile… or lack of smile in pic 2. you can clearly see that the left side of the mouth in pic 2 is not curved down, as is the same corner in pic 1. and the shadow under the chin is smaller. so, they are as different as day from night. sorry

  • Hai

    i saw this in illusion books b4

  • lauren

    wow! I noticed the mouth and eyes were different upside-down, but I didn’t see they were *that* different! scary :)

    • Why need a name???

      creepy. I was freaked. not really losers. PEACE!!!

  • Ash

    This is like the Abe Lincoln one that’s flipped. In the upside-down picture on the right, the face still looks normal until you flip it, then it appears deformed.

  • kitty

    so dum.

  • blah blah

    this is stupid i dont get it at all. wtf! im so confused

  • fat duck

    theyre deformed whichever way up it is, don’t get it.

  • Pandas

    this one was way easier to spot then the lincoln one. *YAWN*

  • Drake

    The “scary”version isn’t all that scary.

  • Hot Stuff

    Oh man, that’s kinda Creepy! The eyes are all flipped out of whack! Hey, has any one seen a movie called ‘Never Cry Werewolf’? It was on
    Sci Fi earlier. When I looked at this illusion, the movie just popped into my brain.

  • ken

  • kyle

    its not an illiusion if you crop it and paste things at different angles.

  • Daniel

    This particular illusion works in certain childrens books as well. If you remember back in the day there was a series, The Berenstein Bears. If you happen to find one at a garage sale or something just turn the book upside down.

  • Lol. When I saw the upside down Mona Lisa with the flipped eyes, I was lie: Awwh, the Mona Lisa has a sad :c

  • Kylie Kennedy with a Slash

    God, i hate the 4th picture

  • A

    Well when you look real close at the “smile” on that one you can see it looks odd.

  • A

    the second upsidedown one

  • I thought the illusion rocked!!! But I still don’t get how it works??? Did Leonardo Da Vinci design it that way??? Or did it just happen. I wonder so many things about great people from the past, like I wish I could meet them. Anyway, best illusion yet!!! Do you have any more like this one Vurdlak?

  • Zachary Taylor

    Just dropped a heavier darker line under the eye… to put more weight on that eye no other changes…
