Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

What on Earth? Optical Illusion

My 9 year old son looked at this image and quickly deduced what the mystery was about the strange image he was seeing. Me, well let's just say it took me a while longer to arrive at the same conclusion he did.

So "What on Earth" do you see in this picture?
