Marble Columns or Shadow People

Take a second look at this column illusion

An interesting example of classical architecture, isn’t it? Take a second look between the columns and you’ll see the silhouette of three groups of people talking to each other. How unusual! At first, it can be tough to see the shadowy figures in this illusion, but once your brain figures it out, it has a hard time seeing the columns.

What do you think they are talking about? Do they know they’ve been obscurely sculpted into a piece of history? I bet not. I wonder how that makes them feel.
