"Red Skull" Optical Illusion

Published: October 31, 2019

Believe it or not, these two skulls are the exact same color! It's called the "Munker-White" illusion. The effect happens because the skull on the left has blue stripes in the foreground with yellow in the background, while the skull on the right has it the other way around. Don't believe me? Look at the 2nd image further down the page. That's the exact same graphic after the stripes are removed. Crazy right?
