Thanks to everyone who participated in the April Mystery Image challenge! We had so many great guesses (no one guessed “a game piece from Sorry,” though I think it’s the exact same shape.) Mostly, I liked how your guesses (a buoy, a goose, etc.) made me go back to the image to see it another way, like in those famous pictures that can be viewed as a vase or two faces…vaseface

 or the picture that can be viewed as an old woman or a young woman…oldyoungwoman

 

Anyway, here is our final, full image.

MysteryWSolved

April showers bring May flowers, and April showers are made up of… millions of water droplets, just like this one! Thanks for playing and keep your eyes out for the blooming flowers of May. (Also, please keep in mind the power of water and the potential for danger and destruction it may bring. We are all thinking about the victims of the Spring storms happening around our globe and hoping for safety.)

    This is a famous optical illusion that looks like to people kissing (in black) and a cup or a gauntlet (in white).

        The eye on the right side of the picture is the young girl’s ear. It isn’t a little girl, just younger than the old lady, that’s for sure!

    For the picture that is supposed to look like an old or young woman, I can only see the young woman. Where’s the old woman?

    • Jeanette May 2, 2014, 4:36 pm

      Hi KW — the young woman’s chin is the old woman’s nose, and the young woman’s left ear is the old woman’s left eye, and the young woman’s nose is the old woman’s right eye(lash). Hope that helps!

      Hi Emma — so funny, KW, above, could only see the young woman. See my reply to her and reverse: the old woman’s nose is the young woman’s chin, the old woman’s left eye is the young woman’s left ear, and the old woman’s right eye(lash) is the young woman’s nose. Good luck!

    (1) I see a vase and the faces but I don’t see 4 people sitting

    (2) I see both the old and young woman, the old woman is wering a babushka kind of sort thing

    (3) I think this one is obvious to everyone…. a water drop

    The young woman. Its harder to see but its a side view of her face. The nose is the part sticking out on the left side while the black is her hair. :)

    In the top picture, I always see two faces first, but I can see the playing piece/vase when I look carefully. I have seen the bottom picture before and i think it is interesting that sometimes I notice the old women first, other times the young woman stands out quickly. This time I noticed the young women first, and although I know there is an old women it took me a long time to find it and I needed the hints that people gave here.
