What is Anamorphosis? It is basically the distorted projection using perspective as the key factor to reconstruct an image that appears different if looked from some other view angle or perspective.

Anamorphic Illusions constitute the properties of Anamorphosis and thus the name. These illusions can be natural occurring and can be clicked from a specific point of angle or can even be created by illusionists or artists. Here, we present you with some of the popular anamorphic illusions. Do share if you like them.

Anamorphic Optical Illusions #8 - Amazing Dinner Table

Difficulty Popularity

This illusion is a bit different than the other illusions. Yes it is art but not in the same manner in which you have seen other anamorphic illusions. What you see is a face but if you concentrate, you can find out that the face is made up of various things that lie on the dining table; be it eggs, cutlery or the wine bottles. The things have been arranged to give an illusion that there is a face that is lying above the table. This illusion might not work from a different perspective angle though.

It is crazy how some artists can create such an illusion that forces our mind to think something that is not real.

Anamorphic Optical Illusions #10 - Impossibly Real Painted Basketball

Difficulty Popularity

No this can't be right! No way can this basketball be a painted illusion. An anamorphic art cannot be so real by any means. We all thought the same with the first glance. Though we can't deny the fact that we still feel the same. This is because it appears so real that you almost want to pick it up and dribble it. But then, it is a stunningly real 3d anamorphic artwork in reality. Whoever has created this illusion surely deserves a bow from us.
