About this creation
Moc Athalon Team "Quinqueviri"
Category: monochrome
Titel: Rubin's vase

It's a Rubin vase, a optical illusion from Edgar Rubin (1886-1951) a Danish psychologist.

From Wikipedia:

The illusion generally presents the viewer with a mental choice of two interpretations, each of which is valid. Often, the viewer sees only one of them, and only realizes the second, valid, interpretation after some time or prompting. When they attempt to simultaneously see the second and first interpretations, they suddenly cannot see the first interpretation anymore, and no matter how they try, they simply cannot encompass both interpretations simultaneously - one occludes the other. (Some viewers, however, can see both interpretations simultaneously without any difficulty.)

some people CLAIM that they can see both images at once, but really you don't know if that's true or not. people who claim that may just look at the negative space, see the faces, look at the positive space, see the vase and then think "well yeah I can see both." but its physically impossible to look at two things at once. You can stare at the center, let your eyes lose focus, and imagine you're seeing both perspectives I suppose. Anyway, terrific job. that must not have been an easy task

Excellent. This made me go "cool!" more than "wow!", I'd have given it a four, but I simply know that you could have done better in the part where the forehead meets the nose, or the bottom of the cup. It's 3 points and change from me. You can keep the change :)
