Most people would say none – the only recognizable shapes are squares! But in reality, there are circles – quite a few of them if you look closely.

This illusion is a type of illusion where a two-dimensional figure, or a three-dimensional object can be seen in two or more sharply distinct ways. This means that if you look at this image from a different point of view, you will be able to find the circles.

Still can’t find them? Here’s are some clues:
🔘 One of the main tools these types of illusions have is different shades of colors to make objects look different. Using this knowledge, try to look between each square to find the circles.
🔘 Concentrate on any square in the above image and see if you can visualise another pattern on either sides.
You should experience a Gestalt Switch between seeing the image as a pattern of squares versus a pattern of circles. It seems so obvious and easy once you know the answer right?

You now may be wondering what an illusion is and how exactly it tricks the brain.
Basically, the input and output from the eyes to the brain don’t correspond, so our mind get’s confused when trying to find what the illusion is.
The Coffer Illusion is rated one of the top ten best illusions in the 2006 Best Illusion of the Year Contest.
