Skull Bakery Illusion


Just a short note before you read Pablo’s post. I did some small re-design today, as you can see (most obvious changes can be seen in sidebar). I’d like to hear your opinion? The changes I made are really microscopic, but I believe they improve positive experience everyone has with our little community. I also fixed some small glitches that occurred while viewing this site from Internet Explorer. Can you see the site properly from your browser? If possible send me your screenshots (of the home page) and inner, bottom pages so I can see how the site appears through different interfaces. I also added site/web search at the bottom of the sidebar. What is your opinion on all this? Any suggestions? Now on to Pablo’s article… – Vurdlak

You might think that there are a lot of skulls in this picture. If you did, you’re wrong! This is actually a bakery, and the breads form skulls. Also, the ‘skull’ in the middle is actually a woman that has a basket with a lot of bread on top of her head.There are also other types of bread (that I forgot their names, I think one of them is a baguette but I’m not sure) that form other things. I think this one belong is the ‘Spot the Object‘ or ‘Scary Illusions‘ category…Post any other hidden things you find -Pablo

    well i think theres another illusion….in the basket on the right, there r some long pieces of bread (possibly baguettes) that sort of look like…mummies? or maybe thats juss me.

    Funny, I thought I saw this illusion here before…

  • Rangusboy

    i think it’s funny that the basket looks concave. It adds to the illusion. I might be wrong about that though (the concave part).

  • David

    yeah. I have seen this one here before…

    the mummies are definately there. the skull at the top right on the shelf has a face on the top of it. can anyone read the words that are on the skulls in the basket at the bottom left of the picture ???

    You can’t see the skull in the middle? try to change your focus and the white part jumps out as a huge skull. very cool

  • Freddy

    Well, this was a nice illusion but I really like afterimage ones and the 3D chalk drawings better than this. This is kind of… (yawn) boring.

  • Skippy

    yes i see the mummies. at top right of the picture, there is a face on the top of the skull. can anyone read the words that are written on top of the skulls in the basket at the bottom left of the picture?

  • amanda

    sick stuff…

    “There are also other types of bread (that I forgot their names, I think one of them is a baguette but I’m not sure) that form other things.”

    Common Pablo, you never heard of google. Please try to get your stuff straight before posting to the site.

    The skulls remind me of the candies they have in Mexico on the day of the dead

  • Morgan

    Okay i see… Bread, wait, skulls, mummies, bones, hearts, uh, skeletons — I’d love to know what inspired the artist to do this! A nightmare, you reckon?
    To: The person who said ‘I can’t see the big skull in the middle!’ How did you know it was there if you couldn’t see it?
    To: All those cant see the image…
    Try unfocusing your eyes, guys!

    Behind the basket of skulls on the bottom left and next to the femur bones (yes, cominique, you were right)there and dough plaits with skulls ontop.

    By the way, the baguettes are meant to be skeletons I think.

    wow, this is really cool… it took me a while to see the big skull in the middle though… is that the illusion? the wrinkles at her waist are the teeth, the two pieces of the hankie around her neck makes the nose, and the space between her head and each arem are the eyes!!!

  • The artist who painted this image is Octavio Ocampo of Mexico. Why isn’t there any credit given to him. It is not in the public domain so he should be credited.
