How many horses can you spot in this striking illusion?
This painting was created by the artist Bev Doolittle and features several pinto horses that merge into the snowy background and rocks behind them. Our eyes are drawn to the white of the snow and brown areas of ground first because of the contrast in colours. The horses then begin to project into our sight, particularly the one in the foreground. There is also a foal to the right of the image.
This is an example of an effective illusion that is also used as an attractive piece of art.
How many horses do you see?
