World’s Largest Lightness Illusion

The World’s Largest lightness Optical Illusion was created by Barton Anderson and Johnathan Winawer. In one image the figures appear black and the other they appear white, this is due to the eyes impression of the figures with the surrounding background.

In fact they are both the identical colors, if you were to cut it out and put them side by side they are completely identical.
