An optical illusion is a visually perceived image that is deceptive or misleading.
An optical illusion (visual illusion) is characterized by visually perceived (Visual perception is the ability to interpret information and surroundings from the effects of visible light reaching the eye) images that differ from objective reality.
The reason is the information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a perception that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source.
Many scientist are working behind the optical illusions to find exact reason. When light hits the retina, about one-tenth of a second goes by before the brain translates the signal into a visual perception of the world. There is neural delays in present image processing of our brain. The human visual system try to compensate for neural delays, generating images of what will occur one-tenth of a second into the future. This foresight enables human to react to events in the present.
Architects, Artists and photographers worked on optical illusion and created great artistic pieces. Even I studies in the ancient Indian epics like Mahabharata, where the Pandavas created a Mayasabha (The palace with Maya).
Here I am presenting some paintings and photographs based on Optical illusion, including My daughter pic.
Note: All the Caption to Pics are have two things. If observe the pics, we are able to see both the things in each pic.
