How Many Faces Don Quixote Painting


how many faces optical illusion painting

How many faces do you see in this painting? They don't all seem to be happy, it looks like there are growling dogs or demons of some sort in the background too. A great optical illusion project would be to create a similar drawing or painting and see how many faces you can fit into the picture.

This optical illusion is a joke about the story of Don Quixote. In the story, a slightly demented knight by the name of Don Quixote rides through the country side of Spain with his faithful companion, Sancho Panza. Together, they chase windmills which Quixote thinks are in fact the heads of giants. The book is an old 16th century Spanish classic and many artists have also done work that was inspired by the Don Quixote story - artists such as Gustave Doré, Pablo Picasso, and even Salvador Dalí.

Don Quixote (pronounced Key-Ho-Tee) is the source for the word "quixotic" which means "prone to delusion or easily deceived by ones own senses or self." Wow, now you really learned something. Memorize this and you'll be a genious at the next party you go to. Better study up some more illusions so you can seem even smarter and more educated on illusions!

Diamonds appear to be the same shade. But they're not!

Same Shade Diamonds

Wow! It will look like the diamonds on the top are much darker than the diamonds on the bottom.

Perfect and printable! This is a very strong optical illusion, and is even noticeable in the small image to the left. Doesn't it look like the top row is considerably darker than each successive row?

moving red spiral

Moving Red Spiral
Sometimes, while I'm just playing around in Photoshop, something appears, as if by magic. This illusion was one of those that just jumps off the page.

It's a large red spiral on a purple background that appears to jump and move. Works better for some people than others, but if you like the moving illusions, you'll love it! Although this small image might move a bit as you read these words, the larger versions are even better!

Moving Backgrounds

It moves! You must zoom in to get the full illusion. You'll see the rings rotate, even though they are not moving at all.

We've created several sizes so you can use as your desktop background.
