Young lady or old woman illusion
Category: Double Meanings | Added: January 27, 2013 | 29 comments
On first glance you can see the head of a young lady wearing a hat with her head turned looking to her right, but if you look at the image more closely you can also see an old woman with her head looking down. Which image stands out the most to you? The young lady or the old woman?

I see both but the first glance, I saw the old lady. Then I saw the young lady. Now I see both at once.

The young womans ear is the eye of the old lady and the young womans chin is the old ladies nose. Maybe that helps to find her ;)

Does anyone know the term for this type of image? I’m doing some reading on sound and written language analogs.
