Piano Mirror Illusion
Category: Shadows and Mirrors | Added: May 25, 2009 | 22 comments
This impressive illusion by Shigeo Fukuda is sure to boggle the mind. On the right we can see a strange structure made out of various piano parts and shapes, yet when viewed in the mirror on the left the reflection is of a completely normal looking piano.

The illusion works because the parts are arranged in such a way so as to produce the reflection of a perfect piano when seen from one specific viewpoint. Move anywhere else and the reflection won't work

This is fake it is a normal wall and they painted a piano on it so it is fake.

The reflection isn't quite "perfect". The issue is with the shadows that are cast. One can see by the shadow cast by the stool onto the rug that there is a single light source. None of the shadows in the reflection fall within the same perspective lines. Awesome work of perspective however!

There's a face in the reflection of the piano...

it must be a broken down piano on one side with a see through wall and a brand new piano on the other but is set up so that the shadows are seen the same

Amazing at first but if you look carefully the shadows of the reflection are in the wrong places! Lol, awesome though! I'm just being picky, must've taken a lot of time and effort. It was worth it as well!
