Stairway Art Optical Illusion

Artists have always fascinated me. The detail that can be seen in some drawings is simply amazing, and some even look very lifelike! My brother is one such artist. He can draw super realistic portraits, landscapes, and almost anything else. I, on the other hand, am lucky if I can get a reasonable looking smiley face down on paper! So, it always amazes me when I see realistic drawings, like this art optical illusion…

When you look at this art optical illusion head on or from the other side, you can see that it’s not a man walking up the stairs at all, but a clever trick! It’s only when you look at the illusion from just the right angle that you see a man walking up the stairs. If I had the talent and know-how, I’d definitely paint this illusion on my own stairs!
