    This can't be unseen - once you see it.

    For now - just say "I see it" and let others try on their own.

    You have to squint - if you don't see it at first.

    No squinting needed. Kind of like the color blind test pages. Either you see the numbers or you fail.

    It's the size of the picture that makes it a trick.
    I didn't see that until after I posted it.

    I had to squint

    First thing I saw when in thumbnail mode. Photoshopped for sure but still pretty amazing.

    I see it. This picture came from a book we purchased on a trip to China in 1999. Bought it in a Taoist temple. The main image is of Laotzu the author of the Dao de Ching. Do you see what's hidden and do you know who it is? Easier to see in the smaller image.

    I see them, no idea who it is.

    The first thing that grabbed my eye in the original pic was two people and five hands...huh?

    Reminded me a bit of an AI-generated pic I saw awhile back:

    Yoga class makes me feel like a total stud, mostly because I'm about as flexible as a 2x4.
    "Design"? Possibly. "Intelligent"? Sure doesn't look like it from this angle.
    We used to be hunter gatherers. Now we're shopper borrowers.

    The world makes a lot more sense when you remember that Butthead was the smart one.

    I looked at it 5 or 6 times, stared for minutes, and couldn't see it. Then, like magic, I see it, but not in the picture when I open it, but in the thumbnail in the background to the left of the picture. Like Rich said, once I saw it, I can't not see it but now when I scroll the screen past the picture I see it for a second and then it is gone.

    I showed it to my wife and she saw it immediately.

    Don't see anything other than two young women with squiggly "photoshopped" arms, pizza and a cityscape. Do I need a shot of whiskey?

    Keep looking and squint.

    Sooner of later you'll see Nicholas Cage's face for a split second.
    Then - after a short while, you won't be able to unsee his face.

    It helps if the picture is smaller - like a thumbnail. I don't know how to edit it to make it smaller. I had the tools on Windows 7 - but - I haven't done any of that for years.

    I saw the face right away, but...Nicholas Cage?!? Um, no, don't think so.
