The tendency of art to deceive, hide and obscure meaning has been known for a long time; there are examples of “hidden” Christians in Rome-occupied Britain obscuring the initials “chi” and “rho”, Greek alphabets for “ch”/”K” and “R” in their paintings as plain frame motifs.

Obscuring meaning comes with the added mental exercise of finding said meaning too, which again is one of the purposes of art. That is, it makes one think in general.

And this mental exercise, on the other hand, helps one know themselves.

Some further examples of this would be the very famous “duck-rabbit”, which Wittgenstein later used to illustrate the differences between “seeing as” and “seeing that”.

So it is no wonder that art has been used by psychologists to study personalities.

This particular picture is also an illusion that went viral on social media a few months ago. The people who reposted it (again, and again) claimed that only 1% of the population was able to spot the animal in the picture within the first two minutes. Can you also solve it?

Now ostensibly speaking, it looks like an old man with a Scottish hat on. He has a sad-bordering-on-annoyed facial thing going on.

But is that all?

No.

Take your time.

Here’s the first hint: You must concentrate on the top of the image, from his cap to his nose. The hat does not appear to be a regular hat. What do you think it is? And have you ever seen somebody with such a nose? Consider your options carefully. What does it look like? If you can guess it, you’re almost there.

Here’s another hint for you: Animals typically have fur or fuzzy hair. Maybe if you take a closer look and concentrate long enough, you’ll be able to tell what it is. Observe the old man’s left ear. Why is it so hairy? Ears do not appear like that and neither does any other part of the human body. So what could it be?
