Optical Illusion Art can Come in Many Forms

Some optical illusion art can be mind bending and others have subtle characteristics that make a huge difference in its presentation.

This 18″ x 26″ wall hanger from Macevoy shows a bearded man gazing toward a mysterious tower with the nearby dormant trees as his hair.  Upon closer inspection a wolf lurking in the treeline appears instead of the mans face and beard.  Wall hangers make great decor in living rooms, focal points in hallways, and many other areas of the home.
