Can You Recognize Her?

Few years ago I’ve shared a gallery consisted of pixelated photos. It demonstrated a remarkable ability us intelligent creatures have, ability to recognize faces even when they are obscured in one way or another. I recommend you read that article first before you continue with today’s “illusion”.

Our Facebook channel became very popular lately  (over 50,000 fans), and one of the things that makes me super-happy is the rising trend where people started being more proactive and began sharing their own optical illusions and findings! One such submission was done by Edgar who shared the picture you see on your right ->

Isn’t it amazing how we can all recognize this painting, even when the information has been reduced to minimum. On the other hand, it greatly helps that the paining in question is globally famous one. BTW, try squinting your eyes in order to strengthen the effect ;D

  1. Bloody hell, I can!

    Then again, working on the presumption that it a very famous she, narrows greatly down the search space.

    1. Poppycock… even without the the description, the image leapt off the page…

      Unmistakeable pattern.

      Live all these illusions! Thank you.

  2. Cool illusion. It is so obvious who it is when you can see her. It may not show her in full detail, but still it is simple to figuire out who she is.

  3. Yes I can, even from the thumbnail posted on facebook I figured it out. Shows just how much her image is shown around the world.

    1. It seems like there are lots of illusions featuring the Mona Lisa but there’s actually just one. It’s an illusion!

  4. Amazing… For me it was her hands, folded in her lap, that gave me the recognition… “Globally famous” is putting it mildly…

  5. That’s a trip, the Monalisa of course- or however you spell it. I would have never guessed it would be that easy to recognize when that degraded.

    1. well omg guess what im like 4 yrs old and i new it wayyyy before anyone else so lolzpop! haha k u can go away cuz im way younger than u and im like waayy better than u so i win

    Yeah, I agree. I always thought the _painting_ was a bit painful to look at :P.

    Your missing a “t” in paining.

  7. Mona Lisa, by seeing those shades of colors you can create a image of M.L. in your brain by imagination, you brain can “fill in” those blank areas in the picture automatically, pretty cool.
