YOU have a high IQ if you can spot all nine faces in this mind-blowing puzzle in just 23 seconds.
There are nine hidden faces in this mind-bending optical illusion[/caption]
The stunning image depicts a confusing outdoor scene with a dark wall and a mysterious situation unfolding in front of it.
The contrasting colours and shapes are designed to play tricks on your mind – but don’t let this distract you from the challenge ahead.
The image shows an orange sky and a cobbled path – with an elderly man and mother seemingly standing in the middle.
But as the shapes and colours all melt together, this painting produces a tricky optical illusion that we challenge you to solve.
The nine faces are dotted around in different areas of the photo, and you’ll need razor-sharp eyesight to spot them all in time.
Like most of Octavio Ocampo’s paintings, this is actually a series of well-placed people, objects, and shadows that make this painting so stunning.
Optical illusions are becoming a popular daily activity for those who want to test not only their eyesight – but their brain power too.
Don’t worry if you’re struggling though as we have the solution below.
If you focus your eyes on the centre of the image you may spot four out of nine of the faces.
One is substantially larger than the other three.
Then if you look in the top-left corner, you will see four more faces in the empty space around the wall and in the sky.
The final face can be found on the far-right-hand side between the arch and the statue.
But if this puzzle was too easy – or too hard – for you, then why not give these fun games a whirl?
Test out your 20/20 vision by checking if you can find the hidden disco ball in this illusion in under 10 seconds.
For more tricky teasers see why you’re in the top 5% of the population if you can spot the owl and the frog.
Or see if you have the eyes of a hawk if you can find the acorn in the leaves.
