Worlds smallest Artwork

Willard Wigan is created of the Worlds Smallest art works, his miniature creations are so small they fit inside the eye of a needle or on top of the head of a pin.  Most of the sculptures are created from a grain of sand which are slowly carved away and painted with a hair plucked off the back of a fly! Many of Willard’s artwoks sell for over 300,000 each! His collection was recently baught for over 30 Million! Im not quite sure if this classifies as an optical illusion, but its pretty amazing if you ask me.  The photos below were taken looking through a micorscope! Willard even has plans to make his work even smaller. Enjoy these magnificant creations of the worlds smallest art.

Do you see a small pyramid above the column? It all in the  lighting my friends, congrats to who ever took this great shot. So what do you think In or out?

Slanted House Optical Illusion

This Great Slanted house illusion was shot by lonniejean3484 from flickr. The actual picture was originally taken of the car sitting in the front lawn. As you stare at the picture you may notice something is not quite right.  The house appears to be tilted or sinking forward into the ground. Any idea how the heck that one happened?

Notice anything wrong with this house?

Invisible Man

The Invisible Man was originality a classic novel written by H.G. Wells that was later turned  into a movie in 1933.  Recently in 2000-2002 it was recreated as a T.V. series.  The ever popular invisible man has been a fictional character that has captivated young minds of the power to move unseen. This photo was taken is Las Rambla, Barcelona by Shamus O’Reilly.  This spectacualr recreation of the Invisible man would defiantly be a street stopper piece of art.

If you stare into this pond or stream you may notice lots of leaves and debris floating above the surface, but if you look closely you may notice a few pennies. The two pennies are just floating around the pond as if they were as thin and light as a leaf. Now how the heck do u suppose these pennies get to float instead of sink?
