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.

Ascending & Descending Model Illusion

Here is an actual model of Escher's Ascending & Descending. It measures Height 17.5 inches, Length 24 inches, Width 24 inches. Dave created this model and was the Overall winner in the HADD7 (Hirst Arts Design Derby) contest that recently concluded on August 30, 2006.

You can read exactly how Dave created this masterpiece here.

But this photo is just the surface, the real art is in the interior rooms. Click on any thumbnail image below to see the detail that Dave created. I especially love the caption Dave wrote for the Monk image below.

Great work Dave.
