Meraj, “Gamer and Illusioner” sent me three new illusions this morning. First one I’m posting is called “Reversed Face Illusion”, and can be seen below this text. It’s really similar to Margaret Thatcher illusion I posted in the past, that appeared on Boing-Boing and had success on other popular websites. If you look at the image below, you won’t see anything strange. Now rotate it 180 degrees, and you will see really strange effect! Remember Abraham Lincoln Borg? Hehe… Same effect we have already seen with Mona Lisa Illusion. Our brain perceives eyes, mouth and nose as main characteristics of human face, and automatically makes an image of the person inside our head. I believe those people who are “face blind” (people who can’t recognize faces!) don’t have trouble seeing this as an illusion. Anyone knows how are this people called? It’s like daltonists are color blind and can’t recognize colors (look at this test). If you liked this illusion, be sure to check original and famous, Scheibe Illusion.
