Have you seen the picture of Einstein that looks like Marylin Monroe if you’re near-sighted or if you look at it from a distance? We posted a story on it on our Japanese site in the past. Well, there’s another fun piece of trick art that is being shared on the internet in Japan recently. It’s quite a simple picture really – just the Mona Lisa with a manga drawing covering a part of her face. (Well, her face has actually been inverted, but it’s still the image of her familiar face.) But look what happens when you see a smaller version of the picture!
See? It’s still Mona Lisa’s face! Amazing what the eye let’s you see, isn’t it? Internet users in Japan have beenimpressed by the illusion and also that someone would think to create such an image.
The inserted manga drawing is a picture of the character Retsu Kai O fro the manga “Baki the Grappler” or Grappler Baki in Japanese, written by Keisuke Itagaki. But I’m sure not even the author himself would have imagined that a picture he drew would be made into a collaboration with the Mona Lisa in such a way!
Hopefully, you can get an idea of how the picture was made from the below.
We hope you enjoy the illusion!
