Wooden Plate Illusion


This one is nice. It took me a while to see whats the illusion in this simple wooden puzzle. After a while I noticed, but it would be much easier if I simply moved my head away from the monitor. I believe this hint was enough for those of you who didn’t see it :) This illusion works much in the same way as eye examination test posted long ago. Do you remember those hybrid images from last year? They were quite popular on the internet back then.

More on site news: we are planing to give you big surprise in following days. Michael helped Mighty Illusions, and created PC Widget “Optical Illusion of the Day”. It works in a same way as Mac Widget and Google Gadget, and you’ll be able to easily place it on your Windows desktop. How exciting is that! Newest illusion on your desktop daily! No more will only Mac users be privileged ;) Hehe… Stay tuned…

      I know it says Jesus, but i just don’t see it, i’ve squinted my eyes, blurred my own vision, even rotated it. But i still don’t see it.

      Mike, if you just look at the blank spaces you will see that they are in the shape of letters.

    My grandmother sent us one of these for some reason a few years ago. The only thing was that we thought it was some kind of Native American thing and had it on our shelf upside down for a year! Finally, my grandmother came to visit and righted it for us. Now, every time my sister and I go to see my parents, we flip over the sign in its proper, upside-down artsy way.

    SPOILER***this one was tricky. it was only when i decided to save the picture to try and rotate that i saw the name of the pic was jesus. so then, i tried looking for jesus. and there it was! good one.

    In what way is this an illusion ?

    It’s fun to suddenly realize the text, but the only illusion is that the vertical bar between E and S seems slanted :-)

  • Debashis M

  • Rheannon K Hartranft

    if you look at it, and use something like two pieces of paper or two pens, i just used my fingers, you can see the image better by placing one on top and one on the bottom of the image long ways so that the the wood pieces are in between your fingers or pens and you can see it very clearly!

  • Im a christian

    I saw it in 2 seconds

  • That one person

    I have one of these in my house, so I saw that instantly. But it’s still pretty cool.

    I had one years ago and a friend I bowl with cares one wherever he goes. He laid it down at bowling and I think it got thrown away. Where can I get one a small version?

  • Terry

    Do you have a pattern to make one? My Dad use to make them, but when we went through his work shop there was no pattern to follow.

  • Courtney

    There is also one that uses the concept of the Asian eye sight eg. Pull back the corners of your eyes and you can see what is in the picture.

  • Ninja kid



  • Jemima duck

It is main inner container footer text
