Hand drawing a hand
Category: Photo Manipulations | Added: March 5, 2013 | 9 comments
Here we have an image of a sheet of paper from an artist sketch pad pinned down on a table by four drawing pins, one in each corner to hold the paper in place to stop it from moving. On top of this paper you can see a pair of hands attached to blue cuffs from a shirt and each hand is holding a drawing pencil. This optical illusion gives the appearance that both hands are real flesh and blood while at the same time they are both drawing the blue shirt cuffs that are attached to each other.

The original idea of the painting is from a drawing of the famous Dutch artist M.C. Escher. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drawing_Hands

Though at first glance they appear identical, when you study them closely one can clearly note the differences. Thus one can then clearly identify the real hand.
