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.

The Lady's Silhouette

Below is a silhouette of a lady. The question I have is which direction is she facing? Is she facing toward you or away from you? When we don't have all of the visual details our mind often fills in what is not there.

Did your mind fill in the details for her to be facing you or for her to be facing away from you? The truth is from the silhouette above it is impossible to tell, either answer could be accurate. See the below two penciled in silhouettes to see why.
