Roses and Noses Optical Illusion


There was so much going on for the last few days I don’t know where to begin from. After waves upon waves of new visitors “flooding” our site, the server almost exploded. So I made the decision and implemented cache technology into our web headquarters. The server load went down, yet our “Random button” stopped functioning. Same goes for Facebook comments. Please bear with me until this get fixed. I’m on it. If you notice anything else that acts weird (like star ratings?), please tell.

For the illusion, it’s pretty similar to the one we already had. Those flowers on your right are much more then just flowers. At least from what I have seen. Can you spot the illusion(s) yourself? Where is it?

BTW, how do you like Jill’s posts? In my view she got hang of it very quickly! I believe she’ll manage to develop even deeper connection with you guys in the following days, and perhaps even present you with some of her fresh ideas for this site!

  • HaloDUDE80

    I dont see it

    • ItsDave

      If you don’t see anything, zoom in a bit and look closer. I’ve found 13, well 12 1/2 faces and need to look away for a bit and rest my eyes. Neat picture!

    • joe

      faces all over

    • I see three faces but that can’t be all. One at about 10:00 in the shaded part of the flower, one at 6:00 in the junction of leaves and stem, and one (I think) right above it in the shaded underside of a leaf.

    • erucsbo

      face below left of the open flower on the right hand side. possible face in the dark area of the flower on the upper left hand side

    • froggy319

      There are several faces in the flowers

    • Look in the negative spaces ; )

    • khushi


  • there is faces in the roses

  • Alex

    I see faces on the flowers and the stem

  • pixie

    I see two faces, bot sure if there is more

    • pixie

      looked more closely and spotted the rest :)

  • cutsie

    i think its awesome! there r a bunch of faces scattered in the pic!

  • valerie

    i think it’s a bunch of faces hidden throughout the flowers and stems

  • John

    Jill is doing a great job!! I confess that I used to cringe at the poor grammar, punctuation, etc.

  • Ancy Wings

    no see it

  • Wolf

    The picture is to small to get the effect.

  • kITTY

    Neither do i

  • Mariya

    No doubt, it is very interesting, however, i see only roses.

  • Conrad

    hmm i see faces

  • ;-)

    I see one face… and maybe I’m hallucinating but I think the flowers have faces too…

  • Dave

    love the illusions – hate the intrusive popups.

    I have to say that on more than one occation I have almost decided not to come back.

    I understand the need to pay the rent as it were but “popups” are intrusive and annoying.

    That’s all I’ll say about it. Mostly I love this site, suggest it to others and usually start my day here.

    I just thought I’d let you know


  • Caino

    I can seee wee little faces !!!!!

  • DJ55

    I’ve found 10 images of faces in the flowers and leaves. 5 in the big flower! Probably more, but I can’t see them now.

  • Sami

    HaloDUDE80: Nothing special. Just few faces. F.ex. if you look at the rightmost flower, there’s a face staring upwards and right below the flower there’s a face looking at the flower. This illusion uses the power of pareidolia.

  • I think there are faces, but I can’t quite tell.

  • Tamara

    Me neither.

  • Tamara

    Oh, ok… I see it. If you look at the white space you will see it.

  • selena

    i see faces.

  • jojo

    They’re all faces! Like in the cartoon Alice in Wonderland

  • Julie

    FAce in flowerone right side, face on bud on left side, faces on leaf coming off base of stem, face inb leaf just above last one

  • Jesta

    Faces! Faces! Everywhere!

  • Paco

    I see a bunch of faces

  • Digit

    Correct me if I am wrong, but there are faces in the flowers, shadows and leaves.

  • Usha

    Wow!! So many hidden faces !! [img]undefined[/img][img]C:\users\169779\My Pictures[/img]

  • Usha

    Four faces !!!
    Assuming the flower number from left to right
    1.Between flower 1 and leaf 1(left down)
    2.Between the last two leaves(right down)
    3.On the flower 4 (right most)
    4.Between flower four and dark coloured leaf below it (right middle)

  • Suzanne

    I was about to give up, then I saw a man with his head tilted up in the negative space toward the right flower. Is her wearing glasses?

    And, are there two faces in the negative space at the stem? I’m not sure….

  • Grace

    Ct 2 faces that’s it.

  • Apurva

    Quite a few faces hidden everywhere…

  • Catatonic

    Not sure if im right, But I see some faces in the dark section of some of the flowers

  • RickyM

    The previous Bouquet Illusion used negative space images – the gaps were the profiles of faces, but I can’t see that in this illusion. Sorry, I can’t yet see the illusion.

  • Michelle

    I only can see a face, like a granny wearing glasses..

  • col

    wake up and smell the roses

  • sue

    oh yaa…i see a lotta inside the flower..lookin up and another in between the flower and the leaf and some mre.. woow…

  • Deepthi

    The illusion in the picture is the faces. We can see different faces in the image

  • Kelsey


    So far I’ve spotted 14 “hidden” faces. and a “cup-cake” :)

    • Kelsey

      make that 15 :)

  • Martin

    One face to the bottom left of the large flower, and three faces just above the stem of the flower. There might be more but I just had a quick look.

  • Kelly

    I do…faces w/in the flowers (hence the noses)

  • Alyssa

    me too…

  • Becki

    I can see faces in it, but only when I see the full picture: missed it in the iGoogle app! Nice one :-)

  • superlegion

    hmm…i don’t see it either…nope…nothing…just roses with very small noses attached to them by sticks…..*spits orange juice* ROSES WITH VERY SMALL NOSES ATTATCHED TO THEM WITH STICKS?

  • jenny b

    It´s a cupcake …. i swear !!!!

  • me123987645

    my guess is it has something to do with noses.

  • Terry Essary

    Look for the eyes!

  • Wait096

    Random faces in the leaves and flowers.

  • kayset

    i can c the “mask of love” illusion in this one, but i’m not sure if its the same.

  • Jonny Pedersen

    I see one face i the rose

  • Matt

    They all got Faces!!!

  • Terry

    I needed to enlarge the picture by 200% then I saw faces in the buds,in the leaves and the gaps between the stems of the flowers. A very subtle illusion.

  • Tara Upchurch

    I saw 4. It helps to enlarge the picture.

  • Found it :)

  • Nisheeth

    I think I can see 5 faces in the flower petals, is that the solution?

  • Wikus van de Merve

    There are few faces in this picture. Not so fancy illusion tho.

  • HannesK

    Wow, that took me a while to notice. I first saw the illusion in the large flower and then looked for the same elsewhere.

  • Claire

    I love the site, and am a daily follower, but I’d really appreciate it if you would credit the artist for all the images you display. Who, for example, drew this? Not only is it helpful to us, surely it’s morally right (not to mention the done thing) to give credit to any artist when their work is used.

  • Jacey

    If I look closely, I can see some faces in the flower buds and in the leaves and stems.

    • Jacey

      So far I see 4 faces.

  • I8UrCake

    I spotted four faces and cookie monster.

  • wendy

    There are faces hidden in various places

  • TampaTimbo

    I see a face in the large open flower, looking up, even appears to have glasses on. Is that all though or am I missing more?

  • TampaTimbo

    I see another, looks like the same face, just below the large flower in the open space between it and the leaf. Looking up to the right.

  • Terrorish

    I don’t see it either

  • Code Monkey

    I see at least 3 faces. One between two sets of flowers, and 2 more on the petals of another flower. There are probably more, but I’m notoriously bad at finding all the faces in images like this.

  • Natalie

    Jill is a nice addition to the site!

  • KReaturez

    i see 1 face…

  • Tom

    A number of faces, including one in the “negative space” just to the left of the large flower on the right. He’s wearing glasses.

  • Jace

    I see them all looking at me! Cool

  • Holy moly!

    I’ve just found it!!!

    Look closely to the flowers and you see faces!

    Good luck

  • Defe55

    I see what looks like 2 faces at the bottom, plus a few scattered around. BTW, ive been a long time fan, but this is my 1st comment :)

  • Care Bear

    How appropriate. Roses (et al) and noses don’t exactly get along well–especially during hay fever season. Good one.

  • ann

    I see at least 5 faces…

  • Care Bear

    Also reminds me of Donald O’Connor and Gene Kelly.

    “Moses supposes his toeses are roses,
    But Moses supposes erroniously,
    For Moses he knowses his toeses arent’t roses,
    As Moses supposes his toeses to be.”

    Check Singin’ in the Rain if you don’t believe it.

  • Muriel

    I see faces

  • bigmomma

    I wish I could make it bigger to see the detail and keep the other stuff on the page out of my peripheral vision. I believe there are faces on the leaves HaloDUDE80. Hard to say

  • lopela

    Neither can I…

  • Patrick

    I have find 6 face

  • Abob

    Oh, i get it!!!
    save pic. go 2 pics then open. zoom in on stem, near flowers. ghostish face appears. Rotate 180 degrees. Look near first face. half of a face appears. Cool, isnt it???

  • lurker18

    3 faces

  • i only see face, and that is on the left of the biggest flower there, i can see it’s nose mouth, and eye

  • Kimon Frousios

    There are various faces, both in positive and negative space, full-face and and profile.

  • khushi


  • Danni

    yeah there are faces but it is rather my eyes playing triks on me or when i scroll up and down wit my arrow keys the leaf on the right moved up and down…

  • Brix

    I see ten including the guy who looks like Nelson whos body is a face.

  • dragondawn
