Shadow Piano Illusion: Accidental or Intentional?


Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of classical crossover music. I’m not sure why, but it’s very soothing and has a nice calming effect on me. I highly recommend it for those really stressful days. I personally LOVE string quartets, but string and piano duos are a close second favorite of mine. So, when I saw this shadow piano illusion, I just had to share with you guys!

The shadows of the railing create the illusion of a giant piano keyboard on the ground here. Pretty cool, huh?

But, I can’t help but wonder if this piano illusion was purely on accident or if the railing was built this way on purpose. What do you guys think? If I was a builder, I know I’d try to always work some sort of oddity or illusion into my creations.

    If it were intentional, the dark keys would be in groups of two and three to match a piano keyboard.

      Yea, I guess you are right.

    But either way that is still pretty cool
