So, anyone remembers original scary skull illusion? In 1860, an unknown author created first know illusion of this type, and called it “Blossom and Decay”. It was one of the first optical illusions in general! It is the third image you can see inside this article. What is so interesting about this motive, is the meaning how beauty and youngness is fragile and short. Later, probably the same artist created the more advanced version with only one women in it. This the second picture inside the article. In last couple of decades, many artist created different versions of this optical illusion. Check Aerosmith album cover, Silence of The Lambs movie poster, Descent movie poster, Skull Bakery painting… We featured more than dozen pictures of this type! Well, it’s interesting to see that Dior took the same motive for it’s Poison perfume, because it’s the first time we saw illusion of this type done in real life! Amazing, isn’t it? I underlined many words in this text, that can bring you directly to similar illusions that involve some kind of skulls. Check them if you wish, and comment which one you think is the best variation!
