Swimming Pool Illusion

There is an old saying that “not everything is as it seems” and you are about to see the reality of that statement in this brilliant optical illusion. Although I am often one to recommend that you try something like this at home, this is certainly not something that everybody is going to be able to do. After all, you would need a swimming pool in your backyard and the pool would have to be empty in order to do it.

When you look at the painting from the side, it doesn’t really appear to be accurate. In fact, it is even “broken” in the middle, so you begin to wonder why they had painted this on the bottom of their pool. It only takes a little bit of a shift in the angle, however, for it to begin to come to life. As the angle is shifted even further, something rather interesting happens.

Although it may look strange when you look at it from the side, when you look at it from the front, it looks as if it is a round pool ball. Actually, it’s not only an optical illusion, it’s also a rather interesting play on words.
