This is pretty weird. Do you see the figure spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise? Which leg is she standing on? If you look away, then back using your peripheral vision, it may change.
I was pretty convinced this was a hoax at first, and that it was designed to switch directions at random intervals. Then Jesse came home and we saw it differently.... He was getting really mad because I kept saying I saw her on her right foot and he couldn't understand why I couldn't see that she was on her left! So I guess it really is an illusion. Pretty cool, possibly the only "moving" illusion I've seen. How do you see it? Can you make it switch at will? BTW, I highly doubt this is a valid "right-brain/left-brain" test, but it is fun.
