Optical illusion after landslide reveals very surprising details

NATURE lovers were amazed to spot a real optical illusion emerging from a cliff – but what do you see?

A couple spotted the strange looking rocks jutting out the side of the cliff at Bedruthan Steps, Cornwall.

Bewildered locals wondered if anyone else would be able to spot the illusion in the rock face

Bedruthan Steps, just a few kilometers north of Mawgan Porth, began to get treacherous in December 2019 when a huge rockfall destabilized the cliff face.

Cordons have been set up in the area warning people not to approach some parts of the coastal path due to erosion.

Louise Coe and her husband used to walk the cliffs regularly but haven’t been there in a year because of the landslides.

They spotted a face sticking out of the rocks and described it as a “brilliant sight” that they hadn’t expected.

She said: “We’ve been there so many times but never realized it. It’s very different, looks like it was formed by a recent landslide – but it looks like it was man-made.

“Obviously it can’t be, but we haven’t heard anything because of where it is.

“We have lived here for many years and are members of the National Trust so go there often.”

While the couple discovered a face, there are four illusions hidden in the rock – which one do you see?

ROMAN SOLDIER

Louise and her husband discovered a human face in the rock, but the crumbling landslide also created the appearance of a Roman soldier.

The figure even appeared to be wearing a galley—a battle helm—as it gazed to the left of the partially ruined cliff.

A side profile of the face can be clearly seen and is protected by the helmet’s iconic side flaps.

Animal lovers also spotted a rather sad looking lion etched into the rock face – with a man surrounding the illusion.

Two eyes can be seen staring down at those walking past the cliffs in Cornwall, as well as a nose and snout.

Locals who see the animal’s image might be surprised to find the king of the jungle glaring at them.

Planet of the Apes fans spotted an illusion that looked like it could have come straight off the set of the iconic film.

Monkey lovers discovered a monkey’s face in the crumbling rock, with some of the facial features carved out.

A nose and mouth can also be seen, as well as the crag marsupial’s full facial profile.

Some compared it to the planet from the movie The Apes.

The outline of a puppy was clearly visible on the side of the Cornish cliffs.

Ears and even a nose could be easily distinguished from the naturally occurring illusion.
