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.

6. The checker shadow illusion

Would you believe that tiles A and B are of the same color? Apparently, the shadow cast by the cylinder make it look otherwise. Yep, we found it hard to believe, too.

7. Three cars

These cars, which appear small, medium, and large, are actually of the same size.

Don’t believe it? Here’s proof:

8. The growing heart

It might take a while but move your eyes across the image and the heart will look darker and appear larger.

9. Fast-moving circles

All the circles in this image are static. It’s not our fault if you think they’re moving in opposite directions.

10. Animal mirror images

Look closely at these mirror images of animal faces. Look very, very closely.

11. Gorgeous perspective.

We can’t decide if the man is inside the house or if he’s outside.

12. Not your ordinary squares.

Try to move your eyes around the image and see if the squares can keep still.

13. Just an innocent-looking dinosaur.

This dinosaur can’t seem to get its eyes off you…

14. The magic paint can.

Uh, what just happened?

15. Hey, where’s Alladin?

This perfectly-timed photo made the girl look like she’s on a floating magic carpet.

16. No fear of heights

This photo makes it look like this guy is dangerously perched on a cement block high up a building’s wall.

17. A strange-looking elephant

There seems to be something wrong with this elephant, but we are sure that it has four legs.

18. This reminds us of Willy Wonka.

We feel like an oompa-loompa will pop out of the image.

19. This clever magician

Made you look twice, didn’t he? Awesome levitation, dude.

Artist Creates Satirical Illustrations to Answer What’s Wrong in Today’s Society

These illustrations are downright brutal and honest.

For the common people, art is all about pleasing one’s eyes. But to those who have pledged their selves to it, art is all about the transfer of ideas and thoughts. For decades, Australian cartoonist Gerhard Haderer has been creating satirical illustrations that highlight reasons why today’s society is far from being perfect.

In fact, Haderer had faced the court thanks to one of his books titled, “The Life of Jesus.” It basically triggered violent reactions in Europe, particularly from the Catholic Church. The story surfaced sometime in 2005 when he was convicted in Greece for badmouthing the country’s religious community. He eventually received a six-month suspended sentence in absentia. A couple of months later, the initial verdict was corrected via an appeal resulting to Haderer’s acquittal.
