7 Optical Illusions That Will Shock You Image source: The Sun

Often considered as one of the most popular optical illusions, this image was created by cartoonist William Ely Hill. Titled as ‘My Wife and My Mother-in-Law’, this image contains the sketches of both of them in a single picture. While some people say that they see a young woman who is facing towards the background, others say that the image represents the side profile of an elderly woman. This illusion is so intriguing that psychologists from Flinders University in Australia conducted a detailed study to analyze the interpretation of this image. The results suggested that individuals of younger age saw the ‘wife’, while the elders saw the picture of the ‘mother-in-law’.
