Optical illusion showing stack of dice leaves viewers confused


A mind-boggling optical illusion depicting a stack of dice has left viewers stunned – few can figure out what’s going on.

A video shared on YouTube shows The art of cubes on a flat surface – but can you figure it out?

Michael Cheshire, who built the art, explained that the illusion is a two-dimensional work of wood veneers on a solid background.

The description says: “The impression of depth is created by the choice of three wood colors, which are arranged in a hexagon that looks like a 3D cube.

“The 3D effect is enhanced with many overlapping hexagons of different sizes. Adding the larger outer hexagons creates another illusory cube that encloses and balances the entire design.

“The gaps in between also help give the structure an overall 3D effect. Even if it is shown to be flat, we are forced to see it as 3D.”

The illusion was shared as part of the Best Illusion of the Year competition, which celebrates the most stunning images from around the world.

The contest included a controversial entry involving a pair of Crocs and socks as people were divided over what they saw.

“Under normal lighting conditions, everyone sees the Crocs as pink,” explained creators Pascal Wallisch and Michael Karlovich her illusion.

They found that most people see the same crocodiles gray when exposed to green light.

“However, some people – those who believe the socks are white even though they appear green – are able to see behind the glow and see the crocodiles as pink, just as they did under normal light,” wrote Wallisch and Karlovich.

“Amazingly, when we really make the socks white, people agree that Crocs are gray, which illustrates the power of assumptions.”
