Stonehenge Optical Illusion


Going through my off-line illusion archive I have stumbled across an interesting painting created by Norman Parker. All odds are that last time I’ve seen it I overlooked the illusion it holds, thus decided there is nothing exceptional about his art.

Being in a hurry man can overpass some really worthy opportunities. Luckily, I spotted the mistake today, and am fixing this injustice. Our regular visitors should notice the impossible columns motive instantaneously, but to the untrained eye this illusion can be harder to spot *shame on me*.

NEWSFLASH: I’ve just been informed by our friends over at BlogHer how they teamed up with Intel, and decided to give Mighty Optical Illusions’ audience a special invite, for a chance to win 4 brand new laptops with futuristic Intel® Core™ i5 processors. There is even a greater chance for you to win some of the $250 Best Buy gift-cards simply by leaving a comment on one of the featured blogs.

    another cool bit, i don’t know if you guys noticed, is that if you cover the top half the bottom looks like tree trunks and if you cover the bottom the top looks like Stonehenge as it is normally…

    The change over is a bit too quick for it to work properly, it just looks odd. That said, if the picture is small like in the gadget view, the illusion works a lot better.

    Okay… but quite easy.

  • been there, seen that. pretty lame indeed.

    Looks to me that they were trying to lift the coffins of their Kings or Queens or other successful leaders spirits to the all and powerful GODS in the sky…or if forseen as we they have predicted a warning to us about the evolutionary change in MTV is going to have on our offsprings…

    Where you say “motive” (meaning reason for doing soething) I think you want “motif” (meaning a theme or pattern)
