19 Amazing Optical Illusions That Will Rack Your Brain

#9 made me dizzy.

The world is full of mind-boggling things that are quite difficult to explain. Sometimes, we see things and then realize in the end that what we’re seeing isn’t actually what we initially thought they were. Often, our eyes get deceived by stuff which ends up with our brains believing those things to be real.

This is how optical illusions work. These images trick the brain by creating a perception that does not actually match the real image. It makes clever use of colors, patterns, and depth to create stunning representations that will definitely leave anyone awestruck.

Check out these photos:
 

1. A head on collision…

You thought the car was going to crash into those pylons, didn’t you?

2. Dancing almonds

These almonds (don’t argue, they do look like almonds) seem to be having the time of their inanimate lives while dancing merrily. But the thing is, no part of this image is actually moving.

3. A giant and two cars

This seems to be a fairly common camera trick often used by tourists when they visit large landmarks such as the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Eiffel Tower.

4. Defying gravity

Actually, no. Gravity has nothing to do with this photo. What we’re looking at is an awesome photo of water reflection.

5. Guess who

Stare at the image and tell us who you see.

Here’s What Countries Would Look Like If They Were People

In the global arena, every country has its image, but how would they look as people?

When it comes to the global arena, it is safe to say that each country has its own image to portray. It may paint a picture of culture, tradition, and people. In any case, they are meant to describe a country as a whole. But what if each of them actually looks like ordinary citizens of today?

This is exactly what a Russian artist by the name of Anastasia Bulgakova thought. In her project, she draws “personifications of different countries.” All of them are interestingly drawn in “militant and warrior-like,” covered in blood and dirt. Mind you, she does not aim any political persuasion here.

As she explains,

Simply because that’s what I always draw in any case, and the idea of warrior-countries gives a lot of creative freedom.

Anastasia adds that every character in her project has, in one way or another, stereotypical attributes. If for an American it might appear a bit naïve and idealistic, a Japanese dude will come with a suspicious smile. And, as she points outs, one can easily recognize her characters in the street.

Well, without further ado, here are character designs Anastasia made for each country in the world. Check them out and let us know which one is your favorite (aside from your own country, of course!).
