Default Re: This illusion is just a matter of perspective

The hollow face illusion, one of my favorite and freakiest. Basically when shown a concave face, one perceives it as convex. As a result, as the mask rotates it appears to reverse direction, when in reality, this mask is simply rotating clockwise.

Dali: "I know what the picture should be ... We take a duck and put some dynamite in its derriere. When the duck explodes, I jump and you take the picture."
Halsman: "Don't forget that we are in America. We will be put in prison if we start exploding ducks."
Dali: "You're right. Let's take some cats and splash them with water."
